Scraptacular

Isn't this a beaut? I love this quilt.

I've been doing customer quilts over the last couple of days, catching up so that I can get back to the Cherub quilt (now officially "Bacchanalia" because I sent the paperwork in).


This one was tons of fun to do...the variety of scraps represented in this quilt is truly amazing! I love how the black gives structure to the rest...everything can be chaotic because that black is so regimented and predictable.

Here's a little detail of one of the blocks. Although almost all of my quilting is done in a magenta pink, you can't really see it - which is good. It would confuse the issue too much if the quilting was too demanding. I didn't want to do a panto over this, as it would nullify it, you'd lose the predictable square rhythm of it - so did a loose, continuous line freehand accentuating the 'exploding' aspect of the blocks.
If I could find a doorway into a parallel universe where I could make a scrap quilt for myself, I'd make this one.

Happy stitching!

That is stunning. Do you happen to have pattern information? I'd like o add it to my someday list. If you find that doorway, let me know...I'd like to go through it, too...

I don't have the pattern information for this one. The lady it belongs to lives quite a distance from here - I'll try to find out about the pattern from her when I return it! (I'd like to add it to my someday list, as well)

I am madly in love with this quilt! I would love the pattern info if you ever get it!

Well, my customer does not have the info! She made hers with a friend who will be returning later this month. If and when I get the pattern info, I'll post it here!
