Bloom Wherever You Are in THE QUILTER (January 2010)

Good day, you all! I received my copy of “The Quilter” yesterday. My Bloom Wherever You Are quilt is in the January 2010 issue. Can you believe it? We are swiftly heading toward the year 2010!!!

The fabrics used are from RJR‘s Always in Bloom collection. The fabric choices made the quilt look like it has a watercolor quilt effect:

The blocks are double tulip blocks. Basically, they are just slightly improvised log cabins! The log cabin blocks are fun blocks to make because they have so many different possibilities depending on your choice of fabrics, placements, or any twist you add to the blocks:

This quilt was quilted with the Tuscany Silk Batt from Hobbs Heirloom and YLI Silk 100 thread. That batt is a dream, I tell you!!!! It is more than easy to manage. I really enjoyed quilting the quilt as a result:

  1. The fabric is beautiful. I did that block once on a couple of quilts that I gave away. They are a fun block to do. I finally put them up on my blog for this years Quilt Festival. Very nice job on your quilt and it does have a watercolor effect. I like it a lot.

  2. That quilt is beautiful Wendy. I now look forward to picking up Quilt Magazines and seeing your designs in them. I still don’t know how you do it all, but everything you do is wonderful.

  3. Congratulations! This is so beautiful. Luscious colors! It doesn’t surprise me one bit that you would be featured because you do such exquisite work. We’re proud of you!

  4. This is so beautiful, I adore it. I love the watercolor effect – the floral fabrics are so fitting!

    Love the quilting too, love love love. ;) I’m working on my feathers…do you think you achieve better results working with silk thread? I have never tried it and am interested in experimenting with different threads and brands.

  5. I can see why you are a cover girl, LOL! Your quilt is really deserving of being a cover quilt, the colors are amazing, and the quilting adds so much texture.
