Quilt Trends Magazine recently featured this beauty on the Cover of their Magazine! Great choice.
The gal who designed and created this quilt is, Wendy and she has a Blog she calls "Ivory Spring". She is an avid quilter and very meticulous with her work.
Take a few moments and click around her blog, we bet you will find a technique, tip or trick that you did not know before you logged onto Miss Wendy's site, "Ivory Spring".
This is what she has to say about her quilt...
Hi Friends! Thanks for all your sweet emails/comments the last couple of days. I haven’t been at the computer much. So, it’s nice to open up my inbox and read through a string of sweet emails/comments from you!
Tango is going to be the last magazine feature quilt I am sharing with you this year. And it is a COVER QUILT, featured in the Winter 2013 of Quilt Trends Magazine! If you aren’t aware of Quilt Trends Magazine, I would say the projects featured in the magazine are contemporary quilts with style! Check out their website for a sampling of the projects if you aren’t already familiar with the magazine. Undoubtedly, Tango is very unlike my usual style! But it was good to step out of my comfort zone when designing this quilt for a more contemporary look.
As you can see from the pictures, quilting was simple. I quilted circles to kind of “break up” the stuffiness of the squares! Click here to read about the method I used to quilt the circles.
