Q113 – Blumish Two – Quilt and Wall Hanging

Good Day,

Our newest and most recently completed quilt and wall hanging is our Blumish Two.

Blumish Two is our composition of 56 six-inch and unique blocks. Our quilt was inspired by the work of Yoshiko Jinzenji from her Quilting Line + Color, 2005, Modern Patchwork Throw. We were also motivated by the works of Piet Mondrian.

Andy and I had leftover fabric from our, still to be completed Blumish One, (thank you Kimberly Einmo for that one).  Andy and I brainstormed on the creation of a quilt with the remnants and scraps. We worked with a gradation of blues and beige-browns.

The dimensions of Blumish Two are: Width – 54” (137.2 cms); Length – 64” (162.6 cms). We pieced our Blumish Two with our Janome Memory Craft 6300 and completed the quilting freehand with our Baby Lock Jewel.  The quilting pattern is our own construction.

Our Blumish Two was accepted and chosen as a finalist at MQX Quilt Festival - Pacific Northwest 2013 in Portland, Oregon along with our Cosmo's Moon.

Here are some additional Blumish Two images. (The image colors are dependent on my different cameras.)
