GO WHERE IT TAKES YOU

18”w x 21”h

Price: $280.00

This is from the 2010 Sapphire Quilters Challenge. We were given the oriental looking fabric and a mostly white fabric that has very faded areas of purple. There was a maximum size, but other than that no rules about the piece. After much angst about how to make the whitish fabric look better than it really did, I decided to use a large piece of it and cover it up with applique and beading. Actually I didn't end up covering as much of it as I thought I would, but the beading, quilting and applique catch your eye and really put the whitish fabric in the background (as intended!). I love how the strip pieced section came out and the movement of the curvy lines in the piece. Of course the beads were the final touch and add a definite sophistication to the piece. The pieces were voted on by viewers at the show in several categories and I was fortunate to win a few ribbons for it.
