Temperature Anomaly Quilt from Flying Parrot Quilts

You have probably noticed that temperature quilts are all the rage right now—there’s even a special exhibit of them planned for QuiltCon in Phoenix next month. Basically, for one year, you make a block every day that denotes the high and low temperatures of the day using a color gradient. Over the course of a year, you end up with a neat color gradation.

I think many of these quilts are absolutely stunning in their visual impact, but the science side of me doesn’t feel like they convey a whole lot of interesting information, other than the ...

Quentin’s Quilting 11, 12 from Virtual Quilter

Love the design despite the colouring (I don’t like blues) but I can also see this design with the blocks in the centre diamond with added colour pieces.

Love the second design as well. Smaller, but with some added contrast amongst the quilting.

White Quilting 15, 16 from Virtual Quilter

I love pretty much every design in this project though the background colour is dull. However, that was the colour which worked best to show the virtual quilting, and it would probably look good in many modern bedrooms.

Today’s favourite is the second design.

Black and Gold Logs and Lilies 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 from Virtual Quilter

Someone has stolen a day … I am sure today is Wednesday, but the calendar and the computer tell me it is Thursday! So I am publishing my mid week Log Cabin collection of designs today, as today is Wednesday in my world.

Hopefully I will get the week sorted by tomorrow and will treat the day like a normal Friday!

This project file is my virtual view of the back of some virtual Log Cabin designs after quilting … after all, every quilter wants to see the back of every quilt we see.

In these designs I have shown the dark ...

Virtual Wholecloth 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

I love it.

However, regular light coloured quilting thread would get lost in the dark shadows of a dark fabric … I would use a crochet cotton, and maybe try longer stitches on top, separated by short stitches on the back.

Love the second one!

Virtual Wholecloth Sirius 17, 18 from Virtual Quilter

Love the first …

… and the second!

Did you know that almost every applique design, and pieced design too, can be used as a quilting motif? That is why we like to see the back of a quilt as well as the front.

Also, modern waddings do not need to be quilted nearly as closely as those which were made before the middle of last century. After all, some quilters wash wadding before they put it into the quilt sandwich.

I love it!

Love the second too, and love the both thread colours as well as the quilting designs.

Quilting with Gold 2, 3, 4 from Virtual Quilter

A simple, elegant wholecloth design.

One thread colour for the motifs, and a colour to match the background for whatever filling is desired.

I like all three of them.

Virtual Wholecloth Sirius 15, 16 from Virtual Quilter

Somedays I share quilt designs I like, sometimes I love them … sometimes I just go WOW! Today is one of those.

I chose this project file because I thought something quiet and gentle would be nice, but I had forgotten that I added some colour to the designs remaining in this project.

I forgot all about keeping today’s designs restful. These are more of a wake up call!

If nothing else I love how clear the quilting is.

Quilting Wholecloth 6×6 1B, 1C from Virtual Quilter

Experimenting with colour combinations so that the quilting lines show up nicely … purple lines on yellow works …

… but I like purple on purple better.

Follow this link to see the original colouring.
