"The Nameless"

I have made a little quilt for a challenge, and as the deadline was a couple of days ago, I can finally show you the quilt I was showing pieces of here and here.
You may also recognize the background which was the background I made Victoria style (all that cutting and angles and head scratching hardly show at all!) and the heads from “Small talking heads” (which happens to be a test run for this project).

The quilt is made in honor of my friendly little quilting group; 8 ladies with different personalities and with the love of quilting and appreciation of each other in common. It has a diameter of 12” and got its semi-perfect circular shape by the use of a glass plate with an added ¼” all the way around.

The heart is made of yarn, stitched together between two layers of water soluble stabilizer. Super simple with lots of visual impact and texture.

I love how quilting and embellishments can transform this to this.

  6. I feel honored. This quilt is stylish. Now we never can get a name and therefore remain “The nameless”. This is truly an honor to our friendship. The heart is lovely. I love that kind of tangled look on quilts.

  7. Amazing! I can almost hear the chatter of all the women having fun with their creativeness. I especially love the heart. I have never used the water soluable stuff you talk of...are there instructions with it? Do you just layer all the fun yarns between 2 layers of water soluable and sew it down before tearing it off? Looks like fun.
