3D From Studio 3D
Topic: Quilting

Yay and Hooray! I finished one of the three quilts I made on the quilting cruise in November.

The 11-day cruise, through Quilting Seminars At Sea, went from Fort Lauderdale to the Bahamas, Curacao, Aruba, Columbia, the Panama Canal, Panama and Costa Rica.

When we were in port we were free to go as we wished. Then on the days at sea we had classes from 8:30 am to 4 pm. We had pre-selected from one of 4 workshops to take from the 4 instructors who were with us.

I took 2 classes with Kimberly Einmo and one from Karen Combs and finished a quilt top in each one of them. Of course, we had 'open sew' time when we could go in to work on our projects on the machines that were provided by Janome.

The first class I took was the one with Karen so that is the quilt that I backed, quilted and bound first.

We used fabric designed by Karen that contains dark, medium and light across the fabric, providing all the shades needed to create her 3D effects. The pattern we worked on is called 'A Chip Out Of Every Block'.

We got to choose the colors we wanted to use from about 20 available. I chose to use all blues and greens to make a banner for my fireplace end wall.

By turning half the blocks upside-down they are changed from being a solid block with a corner missing to a room with a box in the corner.

I quilted with just a stitch in the ditch around the perimeter of each area of value.

 

I am really pleased with how this came out.
