Q11 - Quilt - Rainbow '97

This first quilt I posted today. Rainbow '97, Q11, is one of my favorite works.



This is an original color design. Rainbow '97 is a variation on a classic quilting pattern. We donated it to Tampa Art For Life and now it is a part of the collection of the successful bidder and buyer. The idea for this quilt was a melding of the color spectrum and rainbow.

It's a fair size quilt as it is, in the picture, sitting on a king size bed. It's a play on the blending of primary and secondary colors as they transition each into each other. If you can not see the vivid colors, as I see them, you may need to upgrade your color card in your PC.

If you are interested, and would like some more information of the available quilts, regarding costs, shipping, and insurance, please get in touch with me at our Quilts SB Etsy shop.

To see previously posted quilts, type Q1 through Q10 in the search box on the Blog page.

Stay-tuned for Q12. As I mentioned before there are close to 50 quilts hidden in the nooks and crannies of this house... and we still are creating and generating them by the weeks.

Enjoy,

Q10 - Quilt - Cargo Containers




As you can see, I'm taking a break from genealogy, sort-of. This is number three quilt, Q10, posted today.

This is another original design; Cargo Containers. The idea for this quilt was a stack of cargo containers, in multiple colors and sizes sitting on a loading wharf.




Dimensions - Width: 89½" (227 cm) and Length: 101" (257 cm). It's a large quilt and can fit into the category of queen size. It could also fit on a king water-bed. It is a block quilt... blocks of various sizes and colors in an attempt to match the effect produced by the mountain of stacked containers, waiting for loading at the dock.

Q7 - Quilt - Bette Davis Tribute

Afternoon,

Today's quilt is one of our original designs, and we call it our Bette Davis Tribute.





Dimensions - Width: 48" (122 cm) and Length: 29" (74 cm). This one is definitely, in our opinion, a wall hanging. It combines cross-stitching and quilting, computer technology, scanning, machine-stitching and a bit of grey-matter.

Q1 - Quilt - Walk Like An Egyptian... Feline!

Good day,

And as a lot of you know, we do quilts... and we're cleaning house. The time has come to get rid of quilts that are stuck and hidden all over the house. I'm going to start putting up a quilt on a sort-of regular basis. The first one is of Egyptian Cats and includes a pillow.



The quilt is 72" (183 cm) by 57" (145 cm). The pillow is 13" inches (33 cm) square. If you are interested, and would like some more information of the available quilts, regarding costs, shipping, and insurance, please get in touch with me at our Quilts SB Etsy shop. There's somewhere about 40 to 50 quilts hiding in the wings. And Tinker has nightmares of cats. (I'm not losing my mind now. It left many moons ago!)

Enjoy the rest of your day,

Jim
