Q119 – Sea and Sky – Quilt and Wall Hanging

Good Day,

Andy and I would like to present our 119th quilt and wall hanging, Sea and Sky.

Sea and Sky was designed, pieced, and quilted by Jim Smith and Andy Brunhammer

The inspiration for our Sea and Sky is a combination and connection to our design Light Bringer. It is a creation using paper piecing and applique while focusing on the idea of a geometric perspective design.

Sea and Sky is the second 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, Light Bringer 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 Sea and Sky measures: Width – 38 ¼” (97.2 cms) by Length/Height 38 ½” (97.8 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. In the kaleidoscopes/hexagons we’ve used descending, yet joined hexagons. We added a series of concentric arcs and quilted a pebbling effect beginning at the vanishing point.

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

Check out Q118 and Q120 for updates of our Light Bringer and Diamonds, respectively.
