First quilt!

First quilt!

I was so excited when I finished my first “large” quilt, early this summer, that I could not believe how great it came out. I started it February 2011 (yes I was that slow…) and finished it in June. The chosen fabrics layed in my shelves for about a year until I decided that something has to come out.
The idea was to make a baby play quilt, along with a plush toy, as a gift for her bauptism. And this is the result.
The plush was really fun to make, and it came out pretty large in size. The fabrics I used where from:

  • Michael Miller “groovy guitars” “large pretty petals”, “Large Leafy Stripe”, “Large Curly Swirl”, “Zoology”
  • Sherri Berry “Have a sheri Berry Holiday”
  • Alexander Henry “Briquetage Turquoise”
  • Robert Kaufman Kona cotton: Emerald, turquoise (i think)….

Sometimes things come out so simple but still so unique…I hope she is enjoying it!

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.
