Blissful in the Clouds in House of White Birches’ LOG CABINS TODAY
August 17, 2011 by ivoryspring
Blissful in the Clouds is my quilt featured in Log Cabins Today that is child-themed.
The quilt design utilizes square and rectangular log cabin blocks to construct the kites that are flying high in the clouds! I used multi-colored ric rac for the kite tails.
Quilting was not fancy. I didn’t want the light-hearted mood of the quilt to be stifled by dense quilting. Can you see the clouds, and the “airflow” (aka wind) that is lifting up the kites in this quilt?
Fabrics are a mix of Flower Power, Handspray, and Shasta collections, all by RJR. Thread is Aurifil Mako 50 Cotton, and batting is Hobbs Tuscany Silk.
I hope you have enjoyed Blissful in the Clouds. Come back tomorrow for the last of my featured Log Cabin projects in Log Cabins Today. You will also get a chance to vote for your favorite! Ciao for now.
