Quilting is art. There are so many ways in which a quilter can express his or her vision, or a sense of whimsy, with fabric. We’d like to show just a few that have recently shared with 24 Blocks from our readers. The captions are in their own words.
“Last week I finished this 3 vase wallhanging. The pattern is created from the picture I took in my house.” — Maylin Hu (note: Maylin posted this beauty on October 30.)
“My original mermaid quilt top. Pieced and appliqued.” — Susan Geary. (Note: Susan, with this post, said that she hadn’t yet selected a final fabrics for the outer borders and asked our readers for suggestions. She later commented that she got a fish net patterned fabric for the inner border and a navy blue for the outer. When she had finished adding the borders she again posted a photo of the final top. We liked this one, however, for how it catches a bit of the light.)
“This wall hanging was adapted from pattern in American Patchwork and Quilting magazine Aug. 1999.” — Carol Anderson
“Japanese Geisha Quilt…. I made this for a young lady turning 18… She loves all things Japanese.” — Tracey Hong
We’d like to thank Tracey, Susan, Maylin, Carol and all the other wonderful quilters who share their work with our quilting community at 24 Blocks. There’s so much creativity and freedom to try new things with fabric and needle.
