My Quip – NT Celebration – A New Quilt in Progress

Good Day,

Friends have been asking Andy and I what we’re currently working on. Yes our new project is a king size quilt – NT Celebration. It is a quilt that we have designed and are creating from ‘upcycled’ fabric.

All fabric has been cut into 4 ½” and 2 ½” squares. We’re not going to reveal our initial design as yet. We hope the gradations of fabrics will create an amazing design and picture.

And for those logophiles ‘upcycle’ is, from what I can see, a legitimate word. I would hope that our new quilt project will do the definition justice.

The initial dimension of our new commission – NT Celebration will be approximately 100” (254 cms) by 112” (284.5 cms). This is one monster of a quilt.

The images represent eight of 25 strips. In other words, from the center moving to the right what I have been able to capture is approximately 32% of the whole of NT Celebration.

Check our Quilts SB Facebook and Quilts SB Google+ pages for short and quick updates.

Stay tuned to Quilts SB for more work and progress. And oh yeah, Quilts SB now has a new URL address -  .
