abstract quilt in solids

Its done!  I finally put on the sleeve and hung it in the living room.  Never considered our wall color, but I think it works just fine.  This is the quilt I started in a class with Gwen Marston in November.  The class was called Abstract in Solids based on one of her books.  If you ever have the chance to spend time with Gwen Marston, don't hesitate.  What an amazing week!

Krista Withers did the quilting for me.  We went with organic lines and I have really learned a lot about organic quilting just by studying Krista's work on my small quilt.

And here we have 2 round robins Im participating in.  The top one is from Hollie, and right up my alley.  The bottom is from Fiona and Im scared to death.  Obviously I need to learn how to applique within the next few weeks!

  1. Oh, that is really cool! I love the quilting, how it's not entirely straight but curves somewhat through some of the pieces.

  2. Haha Jenny -- apparently we're on the same wavelength with our posts today. Your quilt looks gorgeous on your wall! Don't you just walk into the room and stare at it? I would!

    You're so funny with the round robins -- I know you'll do an amazing job!

  6. I really need to do a quilting workshop sometime. I also need to hang a quilt in my home! You must be so thrilled.

    Also, I don't know what I would do if I were in a round robin and that one from Fiona showed up at my door. Yikes!
