Q50 – Quilt – Provence

Good Afternoon,

We are pleased to announce that we are now beginning the unveiling of our first quilt of our TayTow SeriesProvence. There is also cause for celebration as this is our 50th quilt that we have posted on Quilts SB. And if I say so myself, Provence is one beautiful quilt. I took so many images of Provence that I had to rein myself in from overloading my PC systems.

Ladies and Gents, may I introduce our new quilt – Provence.

The intention of Provence is based on the steadfast and true quilting pattern of Trip Around The World. I also borrowed the construction idea from Blanche Young and Dalene Young Stone’s book Tradition With A Twist; C&T Publishing, CA: 1996. The fabrics are a combination of 10 as I presented in my Quip on 9 April.

This is a large quilt and its dimensions are: Length – 98” (249 cms.) and Width – 88” (224 cms.) It is made up of tons of small rectangles, each 3 ½” (8.9 cms) by 1 ½” (3.8 cms). And here are some close up images.

And just how did I come up with the name of our quilt, Provence? Mentally I envisioned the colors of our fabrics and as always, I searched the Internet looking for some triggering ideas. I came upon a picture image that seemed to capture that of which I was envisioning. The site, Tongue in Cheek belongs to Corey Amaro. The image to the right, photographed by Corey Amaro, of three woman musicians in traditional costumes resting affirmed to me that I should name this quilt, Provence.

Stay tune for our next quilts of our TayTow Series: Café au Lait, Tango 3, Bayberry, and Kanzashi.

To see previously posted quilts, there is a visual grid presentation at the bottom of the Blog page. Move your cursor over any mini-picture found there and click to see an enlargement. Move your cursor to the "Q#" link to see the quilt's details. If the quilt’s title is highlighted in yellow, it has found a home in a collection and is no longer available.

Please let me know if anything on the Blog site does not properly work, or do what it says it is supposed to do. I’m always striving to make sure an ease of use.

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.
