Quilt Show 2019 – My Year in Quilting

November 13, 2019 at 7:56 pm | Posted in Patchwork, Quilting | 6 Comments

Last weekend brought around our group’s annual quilt show, which is as good an excuse as any to look back on what I did quilt-wise this year.

First, the community project. As usual, I helped put together a beautiful quilt to raffle off for charity. This is this year’s edition:

Lucky Stars Raffle Quilt 2019

Love the quilt, as well as the long-arm quilting which fits the pattern very well. The money we raised goes to Herzkissen München together with almost 200 pillows we also made this year.

Second, our yearly challenge. I’ve already posted about my contribution, here it is again:

And here’s the whole wall with everybody’s contributions:

Lucky Stars - Challenge 2019

My personal quilts all ended up on the same panel, which was not very surprising since it seems I had quite the theme going:

My quilts 2019 (and an extra)

The quilt on the upper right is very beautiful, but not by me, but by a fellow group member. It does fit well though, since it was made for the same exhibition as mine on the lower left. The one on the upper left is the one I wanted to make for said exhibition, but didn’t quite pull off at the time. And the one on the lower right is my scrappy colour wheel.

Since I was pretty busy this year overall, this is quite a good haul, I think. My next project is on the table, waiting for me finding the courage to actually start it. It will be a challenge, for sure – more on that when I actually have a better idea of what I’m doing.

  2. I love the movement in your piano piece, and I am guessing some of the others were “The Hills Are Alive with the Sound of Music,” “The Phantom of the Opera”, and “The Music of the Spheres.” Great work by the group!

  3. Wow! You do absolutely beautiful work.

  4. The “piano” quilt is absolutely stunning!
