Today – I made ART!

Usually I make quilts!  When I finished this one my first thought was “I made art today!”  Even hubby said “WOW!”

I purchased the fabrics in April of this year at The Quilted Skein in LaGrange, TX.  I had not even opened the pattern before we got there  and I started pulling fabrics.  Then I had to do a quick read to see what my fabric requirements would be as I was not following the same placement as the cover photo.  Fabric pulled and acquired in less than 45 minutes.

I didn’t get started on this project right away as I was working on some market samples for Island Batik and Quiltworx as well as many other projects that were not all sewing related.

After I completed the pieced leaves, the gold and purple ones – I said “Oh Oh it is quite LSU!”  Nothing wrong with that, just not what I was going for.

Enough pieced here to lay it out to get a feel for what it will look like.

Then I started adding my other fabrics and it just came to life!

Got to lay out a few more pieces while I was with the Golden Needles Quilt Guild

I am sure it will be a little bright for some of you – but that is the fun about ART – it is in the eye of the beholder!

WOW!

WOW!

Just another angle!

If you would like to make this quilt – you can join me in Wimberley, TX January 29-February 1st.  I am hosting a retreat and this is the selected pattern.  There is also a queen size option.  Click here for more details.  The food is fabulous, thanks to our wonderful cook, Ronda!  The Quilt Ranch is fabulous and the setting is in the hill country of TX and is just beautiful.  All we need is you to make it perfect!
