Elements #24

In my shop today Elements #24!

This was a quilt that I finished a while ago, but I never liked the original quilt because it had a large stain in one of the hand-dyed fabrics that I used.  This was the only picture I could find of it. I didn’t realize it would bother me as much as it did; I thought over time this imperfection would grow on me.  Ordinarily, I like my quilts to have slight imperfections; to me, that’s what gives a quilt it’s soul! Not this one.  That darn spot really bothered me.  So I took the quilt back to the studio and cut it off!  I must have chopped off a good ten inches off the thing!  I’m thrilled to say I’m really happy that I did so!  Sometimes in order to make something better, you have to cut something out.  This quilt is full of energy!  It has wonderfully saturated colors all in a triangle motif!  I love how the shapes and colors give it strength and vibrancy, yet this quilt, as a soft textured wall hanging, is able to stand silent and strong on the wall.  Enjoy!

    Looks great! You can’t tell at all where the change happened. The quilt looks like it is how it’s always meant to be.

    Robin, very strong and definitely stands on its own. I love it!
