Life is a Quilt Waiting to Happen
It's even more fantastic in person. I am sure glad I got to see this one before you gift it. Your niece is a lucky woman. And the zoo looks like it was great fun too.
Your quilt looks great and the trip to the zoo sounds like fun :)
nothing like a bit of determination to get things done! lucky Rachel!
Fabulous. Just simply fabulous.
That is an amazing quilt. Love it!
Thanks so much.
Gorgeous quilt. Great colors and of course the quilting is over-the-top fantastic!
Gosh, I just love your quilts. This one is no exception! :)
Fantastic as usual. I think my favorite part is the black and white wedge like stripe fabric. Very bold and graphic. And the little touches of red. Sweet granddaughters too. Looks like they can keep you busy.
This quilt turned out so well! I have enjoyed watching your progress! Thanks doe sharing!
What a beautiful quilt! I love how each block is so unique and different...and so much detail in the piecing! Love the colors...and love the quilting! Darling granddaughters!
Rachel is getting my quilt???? Aww, darnit. I love this so much. You are truly inspirational, Marianne! And your grandgirls are just adorable. We have a 3 3/4 year old who lives nearby and spends lots of time with us. So much fun.
It's not a quilt...it's a WORK OF ART!!!! Lucky Rachel :)
Thanks, Colleen....I thought it looked rather artsy myself.
Anne said everything I wanted to say! Favorite fabric, love the red, darling girls!PS My local modern quilt guild is hooking up with the national (international?) modern quilt guild, and raising our dues from $25 to $40 for the "priviledge". There has been a lot of mumbling about what exactly we are going to get in terms of any benefits with the national/international organization. Talk then turned to QuiltCon, and I shared some of the things mentioned on your blog, namely the board members all having their quilts in the slow, but other fabulous (namely yours) quilts being rejected, and what we perceive3 to be the tendancy of the "central committee" to want to make all the decisions without input from the members as a whole, etc. While the local modern guild had over 150 members, only about 50 have renewed their membership over these concerns. Thought you would be interested to hear this.
Thanks Marsha, I'm glad you enjoyed the quilt.To clarify....I found it confusing that the juried quilts were mixed together with the quilts for exhibit only. Even though I was disappointed that my quilt was rejected I really did enjoy seeing the quilts that were in the show.As for the fees I think they are quite reasonable...We have to remember the modern quilt guild is still in its infancy and there are bound to be growing pains.
This quilt is fantastic! I just love the bold graphic lines and the COLOR!!! Your work is simply amazing...
WOW your quilt is amazing, I love how you design the blocks for your quilts. Cute little grandchildren .Our grandies are so precious.
It's a great quilt. As the others I'm so impressed.The graphic design reminds me of (and please don't feel insulted, it's no way the intention ;)) of the years in the beginning of the television with what we called "test screens" first in black and white and later in color.Thanks for taking us along your designing and making this fabulous art of work. gr.

This is STUNNING!
What a fabulous finish! I love the quilt itself, and all the concentric quilting really brings it to life. :D
Fantastic, just absolutely fantastic. Rachel is one lucky duck.
Sooo, if I change my name to Rachel will you send me this quilt? Cuz I will if you will. :)
Beautiful Quilt!Have a nice day! RW & SK
Love the way this finished!
Wow! This quilt is amazing! I love it!!!
