keith haring wholecloth quilt (in progress) from Charm About You

This month's Aurifil Artisan challenge was to make a wholecloth quilt. I was sent fabric and thread to work with and given free reign to create. There were a few ideas swimming around my head but when we went to the Keith Haring exhibition in Liverpool recently I couldn't resist doing hand quilting inspired by his designs.

This is an incredibly playfully stitched project and there are elements I absolutely love and also some lessons learned.

I was sent solid fabric in the colour Haze, Painter's Palette Solids by Paintbrush Studio. It's one of their 2019 ...

Vision Sort Of Accomplished! from The Quilt Yarn

I had a vision for this quilt and when this did not exactly go to plan I abandoned the project. Well, it has been resurrected and I have definitely been reminded why it became an UFO in the first place.

I have been working on the border for the last 1 1/2 weeks. What a hassle this was!

My initial thought of stitching this out using Golden Threads paper proved too difficult...the motif is just too frilly and to my horror I also had not taken into account that the borders were all slightly different, so it was ...

Birmingham Festival of Quilts—British Quilt Study Group from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

What a whirlwind two weeks it has been for Teri and me! We hit the ground running at the Birmingham Festival of Quilts and didn't stop until Teri hopped on a plane to return home. With all that activity behind us—trips to France, castles, and cathedrals—posting about the amazing quilts we saw at the quilt show is now possible. There were so many wonderful quilts, that it would be challenging to show them all in one post. Today's quilts are from the exhibit hosted by the British Quilt Study Group (BQSG), while some of the other ...

Virtual Wholecloth 6×6 1 from Virtual Quilter

Virtual Wholecloth 6x6 1


It looks like lace in places, instead of a whole-cloth quilt design!

For users of EQ I think it might be that I copy applique designs to create motif or stencil blocks, which means the shapes are closed … I will have to work out an easy way to open up the shapes. Sounds like a lot of boring, repetitive time at the computer, so maybe I will leave it until my next lifetime!

Maybe by then I will find a new title for this project file too!

Background Work on Wholecloth Practice Quilt from The Quilt Yarn

This is a bit of fun. As this is for no particular purpose or reason I felt a bit freed up to try all sorts of things. It's easy to see that my quilting follows Patsy Thompson's love for hyperquilting.

I will mention again that I have got Patsy Thompson's DVD Feather set. If you want to learn how to quilt feathers I can highly recommend is lovely to watch and packed with information. In one of those videos Patsy introduced hyperquilting...I think you either love it, like I do, or you don't ...

Progress on Practice Wholecloth from The Quilt Yarn

My practice project is coming along. However today, when I finally sat down to continue we had a power outage, so I did not get as much done as I would have liked.

I have been stitching this wholecloth to practice a number of things
- to try my new circle and arc rulers
- to try a new thread - Magnifico from Superior threads
- to continue to explore the HQ Sweet 16, i.e. how different will it be to stitch something that is quite familiar to me but obviously will feel completely different on the Sweet 16

and then I added ...

Practice Wholecloth from The Quilt Yarn

I am making progress and learning a lot by my mistakes, mainly to do with my lack of planning with this little quilt. Absolute must to put your framework in first before filling anything else! I am sure I have said this before somewhere but obviously have not committed this to memory. Maybe it will stick after this time ☺

Decided my wreath needed something else and ended up putting another circle in underneath the arcs. Must say that this got a bit messy because of the compaction already happening so this is not going to be a 100%. However I ...

Virtual Wholecloth 6 from Virtual Quilter

Virtual Wholecloth 6

I have never made a wholecloth quilt, but love them.

I have designed some wholecloth quilts in Electric Quilt though, and I enjoy trying to design with lines creating shapes, not crating those shapes with contrasting fabrics.

Wholecloth Experiment from Quilt Matters

I've been mulling over an idea about doing a colourful wholecloth using the walking foot quilting technique I learned from Heather Lair, which I've decided to start calling Lair Quilting. I first used it on Heathia, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Heather was an amazing artist, who passed away in 2013. I took a class with her in 2011 in St. Andrews by the Sea, NB. She was very generous with her art quilting knowledge and I haven't seen anyone else do her quilting technique other than me. Now that I use it so ...
