I really love this quilt - pity I only made it baby sized! (It's around 30x40 inches) The overall effect is soft but vibrant at the same time. I really like the depth that the low volume background gives it - I think there may be more textured backgrounds featuring in future projects.
The back is also really cute. Look at those little fairies - irresistible!
This is my challenge quilt for our Monday Modern exhibition that is coming up. We were challenged to create a baby-sized quilt that represented an idea or ideas about modern quilting. I wrote in my blurb about the influence of the internet and how you often get to observe an idea being created and then reinterpreted by others. I think the idea for this quilt was first developed by Ashley who took her inspiration from the Marcelle Medallion quilt (Alexia Abegg). Then different versions of it started springing up on Flickr or blogs. So my quilt represents a very modern process rather than a design element.
If you are local you might want to check out our little exhibition - its on at Highwic Wednesday 18th Sept until Friday 29th Sept. Our little group have set up a roster so that we can take turns at looking helpful and/or shooting icy looks at any children with chocolate on their fingers. I must go and buy some white gloves so I can look the part ;-)
