Runaway Flowers

This quilt was featured in issue 16 of Quilt Now magazine (October 2015). I'm excited to see it all professionally photographed! Once it came home from the magazine it went on another trip - to be exhibited at International Quilt Festival Chicago! 

Runaway Flowers (Longarmed by T & F Quilting, Lemont, IL) 57” x 71”

Inspired by the stark, colors and shapes of graphic art, this piece was made as a challenge of my color choosing ability. I stretched my comfort zone to choose fabrics that reminded me of summertime. Like summertime, these colors remind me of popsicles, pure blue skies, and rich vibrant flowers. A play off the daisy-chains I wove as a child, the drunkard’s path blocks connect into flowers and create the basis of this light and airy summer quilt.

IQF used my quilt in the online promos! Way cool!

This quilt was shown at the International Quilt Festival 2016, 
Special Exhibits: Modern Quilt Guild, Drunkards Path.
