So the last quilt that was in my booth at quilt market is based off a quilt pattern in my second book, In the Studio with Angela Walters..
This is the quilt that was in the book, Spin Doctor.
I am so not a purple fan, but I love this light purple background. It’s a little different for me, but sometimes the funnest thing about quilting is branching out!
For my booth, I remade the quilt with the strike-offs from my fabric line, Textures.
I put this quilt together using raw-edge appliqué, the only kind of appliqué that I do!! It was the last quilt that I finished before Quilt Market, how fitting that it was my own quilt. I finished it with 2 whole days to spare, so I had a lot of fun with it.
In the dark grey background, I pretty much used every quilting design that I could think of. I mashed them all together….think of it as improvisational quilting!
Since it was a small area, and since I had some extra time, I quilted it really small…
It was the most “zen” experience I have had quilting. I cranked up the music and just let it flow……I still smile when I look at the quilt. The best part…..it’s my quilt!! I get to keep it! I don’t get to say that often.
Here is a view of the back of that section:
In the center of the quilt, I quilted my logo…..what can I say?? I was in a groove….
And I realized that my logo is the same, even when reversed…..here is the back view:
Within the strips, I quilted different designs…..gotta keep it interesting!
I plan on hanging this quilt in my quilting room, I am so glad that I get to keep it! What about you? What was the last quilt you made for yourself??
