Quilt Art

Week two of Rachel's Curves class is now behind me ... giving us some much needed artwork for the guest room.
Rachel designed this to be a 33" table runner.  I modified it to create a 48" wall art piece.
Living in earth-quake country, I am always careful what we hang over a bed, particularly a guest bed.  I love the thought of a quilt over head ... it just seems to fit with the need.
The linens in this room are about 15 years old and used to be in the master bedroom.  I think the quilt on the wall freshens it up quite a bit and lessens the need to update linens that only get used a couple of times a year.
The wall art was created entirely from my scrap bin.  Which I like even more!  I stuck with Rachel's plan for the most part, but made the rows an inch taller and the strips a little narrower.

I used the two posts on Tallgrass Prairie Studio here and here to figure out how to hang it (I used her push pin method).

It was a Saturday afternoon project and I'm quite pleased with how it came out.

Looking forward to week 3 of Rachel's class!

And I got a 4 mile run in this morning ... starting to get my mojo back!

Hope you had a great weekend!

All the best
Lisa

  2. Looks great. I asked my husband for a quilt on the wall... Ehem... I don't think we will have one soon. The funny thing about it: until last year I thought a quilt on the wall is oldfashioned... you can see how taste can change...
    I made a geometric quilt from your tutorial - baby size. I like how it turned out. I played with the fabric pieces and found out that there a lot of layout options when you have the right fabric. I chose one and went to work. I still have to take a photo and to wash it. Interested in seeing a photo?
