In the past when I've shared projects that customers have done with my fabric I've called it "customer work" but that sounds really dull and these projects are never dull. When I get one of these in my email it's like receiving a gift of fine jewelry. Actually I like these even better than jewelry. They are like sparkly gems sent to brighten my day so from now on I'll call the "Customer Gems" and I have some real gems to share today!
The next two quilts were both made for Easter celebrations.
Miriam Ahladas made this quilt based on a drawing and request from her 7 year old granddaughter, Ava. She used Barrier Island Gradient as the background and Red Sunset for some of the elements. She added in batiks, some fibers and beautiful quilting to finish it off.
Rachel Derstine made this giant Easter quilt as a commission for a local church. The background was custom dyed and she used Solar Flare, Key West and Under The Sea gradients for the streamers. Check out her blog post on the making of this quilt to get a true sense of just how big this quilt is. Rachel also has a shop where she sells beautiful art quilts, table runners and handbags.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
