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.

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?  […]
