Q118 – Light Bringer – Quilt and Wall Hanging

Good Day,

Andy and I would like to present our 118th quilt and wall hanging, Light Bringer.

Light Bringer was designed, pieced, and quilted by Jim Smith and Andy Brunhammer

The inspiration for our Light Bringer is a combination of both the contemporary works of Maxine Rosenthal and Bruce Seeds as well as traditional brick piecing technique.

Light Bringer is the first of a series of three quilts and wall hangings all inspired by the movement of the Hoffman Challenge fabric Indigo of the Anisa line. Including the two other quilts, also our original designs, Sea and Sky and Diamonds, we attempt to relate a story of a moving creation. Apart from the Indigo fabric we incorporated the Aqua, Black, Mint, Blues, and Pink fabrics of the Anisa line into our design.

Our Light Bringer measures: Width – 46 ½” (118.0 cms) by Length/Height 28” (71.1 cms). All thread used in our quilting design is Sulky thread selected for the Hoffman Challenge. Our idea was to use a diagonal grid over the strip piecing. Over the kaleidoscope/hexagon area we’ve thought of descending, yet joined, hexagons within each kaleidoscope.

This is our venture into something new and is a part of our quilting learning experience.

Check out Q119 and Q120 for updates of our Sea and Sky and Diamonds, respectively.
