In my last blog I shared some wall quilts that are displayed in my house for staging for sale. Here are pictures showing the quilts that I put on the beds. The first ones show the spare bedroom with my Kaleidoscope quilt. Large Hadron Colliderscope was made using my template-free kaleidoscope method. I enlarged the pattern to make this 36 block quilt and had fun designing the layout.
The master bedroom is graced with Trip Around the Garden. This quilt is featured in my book, Traditional Quilts with a Twist. I made several quilts based on the Trip-Around-the-World theme, plugging pieced blocks into the the traditional layout of squares to reproduce the on-point patterns of color. This one was made from simple 6″ blocks – 9-patch, Bowtie, Sawtooth Star, Shoofly and Ohio Star separated with the floral sashing. I used a different cornerstones in the sashing to carry the colors through and help the overall design.
In my son’s bedroom, I went with Retro-Radiation, a quilt made from my template-free Op-Art Kaleidoscope blocks. There are 16 blocks made from assorted black and white fabrics with red and yellow added to the mix. As you can tell, I like piano keys borders!
