The trippiest quilt I have ever quilted….

Thanks again for all the quilting suggestions on the last blog post, I am reading them all and sketching some of them. You all sure are a creative bunch! I will be sure to share a picture of it once it is quilted!

Today, instead of begging you for help again, ย I am sharing one of Emily’s new quilt patterns, Groove.

Groove Quilt Patter

Her description of this quilt was quite fitting:

The Sixties gave us a very unique view of the world, the result of a cultural revolution, accelerating rate of technological change, and — to be honest — likely a bit of acid. If you want to experience a bit of that trippiness for yourself, may we recommend this quilt as a relatively safe form of mind-altering substance?

This quilt is definitely “trippy” but in an awesome way! I don’t know how she puts together such wonderful color combinations, but each time she wows me! Here are some close up shots of the quilting:

I had such a fun time quilting this quilt, I picked a different design for each color and just filled it in!

I also played with the scale ย of the designs. I used the same circular design in the yellow and the magenta portions, I just allowed the design to get bigger in the magenta portion. I think that it give the quilting a totally different look!

Here is a close up shot of the quilting in the orange part of the quilt.

And of course, a shot of the back:

The “pre-quilt market” rush has offically hit me so I better hop off of here and get to quilting! But before I leave I had to share a quote with you:

“Every master used to be a disaster”

I wish I could remember who said it……but I can’t. I read it in one of my how-to-be-better-at-something self-help books. The point is this…no one starts as a master, they start as a disaster and then with a lot of work and practice, they become a master. Such true words for every part of our lives!

Happy Quilting!
