Another quilt that I had hanging at QuiltCon was this group quilt, made by the members of Bee Imaginative. I have posted about what inspired these blocks here.

Bee Imaginative Quilt

I finished it up by quilting the backgroud with dense straight lines. Then I went back and filled in the piecing with straight lines in the opposite direction that are set further apart.

I am so happy to have finished up this quilt. I often put my bee blocks to the side with every intention of putting them together into a top, and suddenly two years have passed and I still haven’t found the time… Thrilled to get to use this wonderful quilt!

Bias

I was proud to have quilts hanging in the QuiltCon show.  One of them was Bias which I’ve posted about a couple of times while it was in progress.

The quilting on this is all straight line, echoing the piecing design. It took foreeeever, as this dense straight line quilting always does. Good thing there was a deadline to get it finished because it was hard to get it done!

I think that this quilt is a nice balance of clean, uncomplicated design, while also having interest. I’m really happy with it!

Remember this idea? Well I got this commission finished up about a week ago. My first finish of 2013.

In a Sea of Blue

It’s a big queen sized quilt. And look, I’m taking a flat photo of it! Very exciting stuff. This is because for Christmas my husband got me a great photography set up for my big quilts.

Until the day comes that I have some fabulous enormous studio space where I can shoot my big quilts, this will be my set up! I need to figure out a better clip and hang system than the clothes hangers but I will… and then I’m hoping that I get the gumption to take it different places beyond my sister’s back yard.

Here’s a detail of the quilt after I’d washed it (these first photos are before I washed it) and it got that nice crinkle. I’d say that the colors are truest in this photo.

The orange is Kona flame and boy is it bright! But in this sea of blue it works. I was thinking about using negative space differently in this quilt… sorta like I pieced it with all of the blue. I know it doesn’t really read that way, but it’s an idea I hope that I find more time time to explore in the future!

Pink Greater Than

Finished up a little baby girl quilt!  Named it Pink Less Greater Than (my math memory is definitely less than great and I got it backwards! Name adjusted!) because it looks kinda like a greater than symbol.

I made this block…

SMS Modern BOM - October

…for my Modern Block of the Month awhile back and I wanted to make a whole quilt version. I foresee more exploration of this design in the future.

I had fun with the quilting on this one.

I echoed the piecing with straight lines in gray and then I filled in the piecing with vertical straight lines in pink.

I was happy with how it came out!
