Perfect Harmony

image

This is a quilt I was not at liberty to show you until now.

I worked on this in a different manner than my usual method of dyeing the fabric and then letting the fabric tell me what to do.

I planned out what I wanted to happen with the fabrics and then carefully measured and dyed each fabric to undulate in a similar manner.

When I had it sewn together I contemplated how I would quilt it.

This is a close up of the quilting. The undulating pattern in the fabric suggested the quilting pattern.

I felt the two complemented each other and that is why I have titled it “Perfect Harmony”.

It is gorgeous, Kay! And the word "undulating" for both the fabric and the quilting is perfect. Congratulations on creating an entry specifically for QN, something I've never had the courage to do. I admire you and your work.
