Since piecing is one of my favorite parts of making a quilt, I always look forward to this category….
This quilt is an amazing example of a pineapple quilt……
It moves up the scale when you see it in perspective…..
It was TINY!!
Paula Nadelstern is well known for her piecing, but this quilt of hers blew my mind completely!!
As an example of the work, these are two of the blocks….each a “kaleidoscope” four-patch…..
There are over 14,000 pieces in the background of this next quilt…..
This is what the maker says about this next quilt…. “The design started with a geometric pattern of lines and shapes that were repeated over the surface. A perspective technique was then used to create a realistic illusion of depth and make the pattern pop out of the quilt surface. This portrays a more lifelike image and helps draw you into the quilt.”
I absolutely LOVE this design!!!
This quilt was awarded the Third-Place ribbon…..
This quilt won the Second-place Ribbon…..
….and this was the Blue-Ribbon winner…..
The fabrics in each block are the same. The color difference is achieved by using different colors of thread for the quilting. I have seen this technique before and it is SO effective!!
Speaking of colors….tomorrow we are celebrating the color RED!!!! Come back for more..
