My Quip – Blumish Two Quilt Top Completed

Good Day,

And we’re just waiting for our third winter this season. Yeah, that’s right, Tampa has mini-winters. This cold snap should bring in some possible freezing temperatures. There’s supposed to be snow up in Tallahassee. Guess there are enough quilts in this house to keep warm, and I so glad, not necessarily pecuniarily, but we had a brand new AC – Heat pump put in this week.

We have finished the top of our new Blumish Two quilt. Here is a preview taken this morning in the sunshine.

Blumish Two is a composition of 56 six-inch and unique blocks. Inspiration of our Blumish Two can be attributed to the works of Yoshiko Jinzenzi and Kimberly Einmo. The fabrics are of Robert Kaufmann Kona Cotton and Moda Bella Solids. We worked with a gradation of blues and beige-browns. The overlay of an intermittent grid has been created through our process of a machine appliqué. Obviously there is an inspiration of sorts from the works of Piet Mondrian. In our recent quilt, Mondrian I, (See Q98), we created the grid borders by sashing.

Our guesstimation for the final and completed size of Blumish Two will be 54” wide and 66” long.

We have been working on the designs for the quilting for both our Blumish (See My Quip – Blumish) and Blumish Two quilts. I believe we have settled on initial complimentary patterns.

Stay tuned to Quilts SB and check our Quilts SB Facebook page for updates of our progress.
