For those who have not already met him I would like to introduce my submission into the Modern Category of the Fall Version of the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, Big Blue. (And for the folks who have already seen this quilt on my blog thank you for bearing with me.) This quilt along with many of my recent makings is inspired by the clean hard lines of Modern Art. Specifically, the work of minimalist painter Alain Biltereyst and one of his tiny paintings highly influenced my big quilt.
As I made this quilt believe it or not I did not draw up a plan but instead started cutting and sewing pieces together. Crazy as it is, that is how I make up most quilts and also likely why this quilt that was meant to be a baby quilt became much larger then expected. I used Kona Cottons on the front and Robert Kaufman Essex Yarn Dyed Linen for the back and it measures 60 by 86 inches.
The quilt was beautifully quilted by Emily Sessions of Emerson Quilting.
