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.
The block is so beautiful. I love the idea of Bed Runners. Something small enough to work on inbetween other things that will make a huge impact. Can't wait to see it in full.ReplyDelete
The block is beautiful and the quilt design is, too. I can't believe we will have to wait until next summer.ReplyDelete
