Blocks and Beads Handmade Quilt
It's interesting to me that when some people talk about handmade quilts, they only think of them as traditional bedding, or bed covers. Today handmade quilts are more than just updated takes on favorite patterns like harvest crazy quilt, they are understandably also recognized as art, and here is a wonderful example.
Blocks and Beads Handmade Quilt was one of the entries in Piece and Plenty Quilt Guild's fall 2017 show in Rolla, Missouri. It caught my eye because, from a distance, the blocks look like books on a shelf.
As I got closer, the quilting had my attention. Usually modern quilts tend to be quilted with a lot of detail but this one obviously had been deliberately kept simple, a good decision when one looks at the overall impression.
This handmade quilt was also a good choice for a design for a quilted wall hanging.
The color choices were also wonderful, I don't know how many times I have seen beautiful work but the fabric choices were dismal.
Piece and Plenty Quilt Guild's bi-annual show is judged and this one was in a category for judging. And the end result?
A winner in all categories!
