Tis the season to get the modern quilts ready to enter in QuiltCon 2016. I think the deadline is in November. (I did find this quilt entry page for you.) Though I won’t be attending QuiltCon out in Pasedena, I’m totally crossing my fingers that this quilt may have a shot at it.
Today’s post is a portion of my quilt entry for the “small” category. I’m choosing not to show the whole quilt. I think the Modern Quilt Movement is sooooo online that by the time the show came around last year, I had seen most of the quilts already, on instagram.
Instead, I’m just going to show a portion of the quilting. I have quilted this little guy completely on my home machine with my free motion (FMQ) quilting foot.
In the very slim chance this quilt makes it to the show, it will be a surprise. Um, on that note, if it doesn’t get accepted, I’ll totally be blogging the whole image.
Looks like the lighting in my studio turned that right-hand side a bit yellow. Oops. Not too worry, once it is bound, I’ll be taking those fancy “show entry photos” in better lighting.
There may be pebbles. There may be feathers. There might also be some lines… and there may be a bit of Graffiti Quilting!!
Just to keep it interesting for you, some of these pictures are the quilt back and some are the quilt front. Strangely, you really cannot see the graffiti quilting from the front at all.
I better get off to binding this dude.
You can enter up to three quilts. I wonder if I’ll get around to making two more???? So far I have no plans to do so.
