I am working on a quilt which will be featured in Quilter's World next year. I have a November 30 deadline to get it done and I am making good progress. All I have left is the quilting. here is what one block looks like.
This quilt was inspired by a vintage embroidery design I found in an old book. It depcted an antique bridesw bowl with roses spilling out of it. I redrew one of the roses and several of the leaves and played around with the parts until I got a composition I liked. Then I used it to create a bed runner design for a Victorian decor.
I found an article talking about how to make a bed runner here: How to Make a Bed Runner
According to this article, "It is the modern equivalent of the heavily quilted Bedspreads of the highly indulgent times!" I found examples that are made of silk or tapestry, highly ornate with embroidery and embellishments.
Watch for the pattern coming in Quilter's World magazine next summer.
