Presenting “Flourish on the Vine”
Over the past two years, I have been sharing the progress of my latest quilt project in this blog. Here, finally, the quilt Flourish on the Vine is revealed.
Quilt as Desired
Quilting is quite possibly my favorite part of the whole quilt-making process. Here is a sneak peek at the quilting motifs in my current quilt project.
Border Motifs Part 1
Last week, I attached the borders to the center panel of my current quilt project. This milestone seemed the perfect opportunity for an update on this quilt.
Border Swags Part 2
Designing the swags for the borders of my quilt “Flourish on the Vine” has been the single greatest challenge in my creative life to date. Last week, I outlined the many questions and dilemmas that I faced. This week, as promised, I will explain the somewhat unusual approaches that I used to address my design […]
Border Swags Part 1
It has been quite a while since I last shared the progress of my quilt “Flourish on the Vine”. This is partly because the next stage – the appliqué in the borders – is taking a fair bit of time to complete. But it is also because I didn’t want to reveal any of the border designs […]
Center Panel Sections 7 & 8
Here are the last two sections in the center panel of my current quilt project. Sections 7 and 8 run vertically and horizontally along the edges and finally connect all the other sections together.
Center Panel Section 6
Time for another update on my current quilt project. Here is section 6, which serves primarily as a connector between sections 5 and 8.
Center Panel Sections 4 & 5
I finished the appliqué on the center panel last week. This has sent me back into design mode as I furiously try to decide what will come next. What better time, then, to share two more sections from my current quilt project.
Center Panel Sections 2 & 3
I’m still working on my goals for 2010, but it is certain that my current quilt project will be at the top of the list. The center panel is nearing completion, so I thought it was time to reveal a couple more sections.
Introducing my New Quilt Project
Over the next months, I’ll be sharing my progress as I work on my current quilt project. I started the quilt in June 2009 and have made a fair bit of progress so far. Inspired by the words of John 15, the quilt will be a hand appliqued representation of vines, branches and fruit. This article will introduce my quilt, its theme, color scheme, and layout, and show you the first section in the center panel.
