Blogger’s Quilt Festival 2015: Dresden quilt

Welcome, Blogger’s Quilt Festival friends! So glad you could stop by! I am entering this 3-year-quilt-project in the Hand Quilted quilts Category and the Applique quilts Category. Stop by and vote for me!

Some words about this quilt:

A three-year-project finally finished, before the end of 2014. After so many hand quilting stitches, I accept I really miss working on it. I am planning another long-term quilting project, just to have something around to whine about.This is going to be the first quilt I will keep for our family! My only problem is that I have to wash it somehow in order to use it, and I have to wait until summertime, or else I will ruin it with such humid weather.

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.

[…] It is a very personal sewing hobby, every stitch counts for me, every stitch is meant for someone special. Creating something that is one-of-a-kind, and that is meant to go to a specific person is something really priceless. I am addicted to quilting for those exact reasons. 3. What is your favorite quilting tip? My favorite tip is definitely the quote that “there is no quilting police”. Even though I love accuracy and perfect geometric shapes, quilting is a form of art, that has no boundaries. Everyone has to remember that mistakes are meant to made, and that no-one, except ourselves, will ever see them. 4. What was your inspiration for your Quilt Festival quilt?  […]
