The Feathers of Angel Wings
Today's 2 quilts are whole cloth quilts. I love looking at whole cloth quilts. The designs and texture created by just the quilting motifs is really inspirational. It reminds me not to overlook the importance of the quilting design in my pieced quilts.
This stunning quilt is called "Jordyn's Angel Quilt" by Richard W. Orr of Dixon, CA. It is made with dupioni silk. All the blocks were designed using the Inteliquilter computerized program and the rays and micro stippling were done free motion with his APQS Millenium long arm machine. It was designed by Joann Hoffman, Judy Woodworth, and Mary Nordeng.
It's rather fancy for a baby, but I can just imagine wrapping it around a precious child.
This next quilt is truly a lesson in how fillers are important to create depth in the quilting pattern. It is called "Flowers and Feathers" by Kristin Vierra of Lincoln, NE. It is based off a quilt designed by Debra Wagner called Winter Bouquet that was published in the 1993 edition of Great American Quilts. Kirstin change the size of the quilt and added her own touch with the fillers and borders.
It's just beautiful, no?
Have you ever considered making a whole cloth quilt? I don't really have time now, but it is on my quilting bucket list. How about you?
All this white today, but next week we will return to the land of color with some of the most colorful quilts I saw at the show!
