Latest Quilt: “Glacier Star”

Here is the one Wife just finished last week. We haven’t decided if it is to go on a wall (and if so, where??), be a throw, or what, but it took an incredible amount of work and  was very difficult. It’s a real accomplishment for her, as it incorporates some techniques she hasn’t used previously. It isn’t finished yet, it still has to have the batting, backing, be quilted (we’ll use a pro for this one) and then the binding put on, so the outer edges are still rough-cut in the photo.

  1. Barbara needs to enter that one in a show. I think it would be a winner for sure.

  2. A nice one. My sister would love that one, though she’s got too much on her mind at the moment for anything as mundane as relaxing.

  3. Well, I can’t see it. I wonder why it’s not showing up on my screen.

  4. Richard says:

    Patti, she has considered it, but resisted because she thinks it may not be good enough, and there are better ones by other people. Try as I might I have had no luck convincing her.

    Randy, sometimes, relaxing is just what the busy stressed person needs a dose of.

  5. Richard says:

    Charles, I don’t know. It does take a minute to load, it’s a big image. Other than that, I’m not sure, the others can apparently see it. You might try it with another web browser.

  6. Jeff Meyerson says:

    Wow – that is extremely impressive. I bet she could sell it if she wanted to. Really nice.

  7. Richard says:

    I doubt it, Jeff, because she had to take a class to learn those special techniques, and it cost a whopping $350. Plus another $150 in materials and then something for all the time it took her to make it, and that was significant. It’s unlikely anyone would pay $650 or more, even for a 60×60 inch quilt.

  8. Some things are worth more than money…like this quilt. I wouldn’t part with it.

  9. Art Scott says:

    I have scant interest in or appreciation for fabric art, but this is effing stunning!

  10. Richard says:

    Thanks, Art. It was difficult and lots of work but came out the way I’d hoped
    – Barbara

    Why sell such a great piece of work? Enjoy it.

    What a beautiful piece. It’s positively a work of art and deserves to go on the wall!
