Original Quilt Entry–Cerise to Blush

I can’t believe I almost missed this falls’ Blogger’s Quilt Festival Hosted by Amy Ellis!  I love the Bloggers Quilt Festival!  It’s such a great way to see what everyone has been up to, check out everyone’s work and of course – strut your stuff!

My first entry is going into the “Original Quilt” category.

“Cerise to Blush” is the result of my final project for Lorraine Torrence’s Design I Class at Mill House Quilts.  This class was amazing for me as I’ve always created per my gut and not really known any of the color/design theory behind what I’m doing.  Now I think I have at least some idea!

IMG_9032This quilt was made as a result of blocks I made from a homework assignment based on scale, value, and symmetry!  We could have done the assignment with paper or gluing fabric to paper but if I’m going to do something … I wanted to be able to eventually make something out of it.  IMG_9038You can read more about my process on this quilt by going to my original post HERE.IMG_9040

I do have to say that I did do the free motion quilting all by myself – I mixed pebbles with wavy line quilting and I think it was great!

“Cerise to Blush” has hung at two shows since I finished it.

It took a blue ribbon at the Lodi Valley Ag Fair.

And it was accepted and hung at the 2016 Quilt Expo!

It’s always fun to see your quilts hanging so others can check it out too!

Now – go on back over and check out the other original quilts!  They are all amazing!  If you love “Cerise to Blush” I would really appreciate a nomination for “Viewer’s Choice”.
