Blogger’s Quilt FestivalMay 21, 2010
I have one quilt that is my absolute favorite of not only the quilts that I have made this year, but of all the quilts I have ever made…
It is my Starry Night Quilt:
It’s little – measuring at just 17 x 22 inches, but it was a huge first for me.. or rather several firsts:
My first art quilt. My first raw edged applique. My first time working completely without a pattern. My first time playing it by ear with free motion quilting. My first time that I liked the finished quilt enough to want to hang it on a wall.
And my first time sewing with LED lights:
The LEDs are sewn in with conductive thread and connected to a little round battery. I got the LED sewing kit from Maker Shed.
I had been wanting to make a Starry Night quilt because I think the painting is so haunting. When I saw the LED sewing kit, I knew that it was meant to be.
Anyway, thanks for checking it out, and don’t forget to click on the link at the top to check out everyone else’s quilts 🙂
