It’s that time of year, when the spring quilt festival happens over at Amy’s Creative Side, and this year I’ve actually got my act together enough to enter a quilt.
I blogged about this quilt recently, but here it is again: The Insane Red Artichoke!
This quilt started life as a challenge for my local traditional guild to use two squares, superimposed on one another and one rotated 45 degrees, in a quilt. I had to make it twice to figure out the best way of doing it–paper piecing came to the rescue!
I’ve been into feathers lately, and I got a lot of practice in on this one! I’m feeling a lot more comfortable with them now.
Here’s a shot of the back, which I kind of also love:
Now hop on over to the current Festival and check out all the other inspiring quilts!
