It all started while walking around the mall one day. I snapped a picture of this Anthropologie window display thinking it would make a great quilt.
After sketching and experimenting, that idea turned into this! Meet The Whirlpool!
This is completely machine pieced. I quilted it using a flame-like design with matching threads. As per my usual, I used Art Gallery Pure Elements. I think it's about time I get a wholesale account and just buy a bolt of each color...
The stitching from the back.
This guy actually replaced the Pixelated Color Wheel in my living room and now hangs above our piano.
I had so much fun piecing this. I was absolutely thrilled when my idea came out better than I ever imagined. If you missed out on Sew South, join me at The Small Town Quilt Show in Midway, Utah this June. I'll be teaching another Improv Quilting class! As part of the class, I'll be discussing the method I used to create this piece!
