Community Quilt 49

1 01 2013

This wasn’t my favourite quilt (something to do with the colours, I expect), though like the other crazy 9-patch quilt, this one looked so much better once it was on the line and viewed from a distance. Again, it looked like an abstract painting to my eyes.

On closer inspection, this wasn’t a crazy 9-patch as I had assumed — it was a crazy 4-patch, 6-patch and 9-patch!

I wanted to try something different so I decided to stitch spirals all over the quilt, as my first efforts with these were pretty dismal. I wanted to break up the sharp edges and angles of the crazy patches, so a rounded motif such as a spiral was just the ticket for that. (I love the little heart in the top left — nice touch!)

That one has almost a “dizzy-ing” affect!! I do think it’s the colors used. Like the swirls….offsets the angles nicely.

Another great man-quilt – we are always short of quilts for men and the crazy-style geometry is perfect. Again, great choice of quilting!
