Blue Sonata


I recently finished this quilt as a commission.  It had to fit a specific space so its dimensions (25" x 58") are unusual.  I love to make these "slice and dice" quilts with the curved piecing - something very satisfying about getting all the horizontal tedious work done and then rapidly finishing the piece.  I believe its new owner is pleased.  Now I'm tempted to make one for myself since the unusual width looks good in several places in my house.  But that's sort of like the cobbler's barefoot children.

This is beautiful. The fabrics make it look almost like stained glass and I love the wavy lines.

This is a fantastic piece, for sure. The colors blend in a most pleasing way and the pattern is wonderful. Hope to see this before you give it to your customer. Or....make another.

I love this quilt, the colours the movement and it's something I could well live with on my wall!

This is very nice. I hope you do a few more with this approach. It is hard to let go of a piece as soon as you have finished it. ... However, I'm reminded of something my Mother used to say. "Nothing does more to inspire a new project than an empty wall in your own house." Your work is lovely. kbartdesigns.com
