Phew! Finished this one just before school started this September. I am entering it in Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival. I made this large queen size quilts for a commissioned wedding gift. It is HUGE! Definitely at the size limit of what I can manage on my Janome Horizon, that is for sure. This is a quarter log cabin design by Liz Katsuro and the block orientation gives a wonderful three dimensional effect. The colour palette was by request and is supposed to invoke romance. What do you think? Rich purples, rich reds, a touch of dark blue against contrasting low volume fabrics.
In order to make the colours work, I grouped the dominant colours in the blocks for each of the rings of blocks, radiating from the centre blocks.
Quilted in straight lines, in Aurifil dove grey and backed with Carrie Bloomston's Story wideback, it is a finish!
Check out all the other quilts entered in the Blogger's Quilt Festival. It never disappoints.
