(Rebel, Rebel - With apologies to David Bowie) Song lyrics often pop into my head at moments like this. I just pulled this "The Rebel" quilt off my frame. This is such a cool quilt and such a simple concept. It's a Libs Elliot design as pieced by my customer, Susan L. Susan said she wanted "dense" quilting on it, which I interpret as "go crazy"! So I did. I love it - hope she will to - she' picking it up shortly.
The quilting is random in one way, but not in another - I used a few motifs throughout the quilt in various forms (small, large, partial). I some instances I "framed" sections. There are, for example, three stars and a couple of places where I did some "graffiti quilting". Then there are the "flowers" - using arcs. I may have missed one or two in the pix. I didn't want it to be too "girly" as I believe the quilt will be going to a young man.
I love everything about this Mary!!ReplyDelete
