This quilt was my recent submission for the Portland Modern Quilt Guild's
in the beginning of July. This was my Quilt Story for the submission of my quilt:
"For over a year I have been obsessed with Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy collection; out of print and hard to find; not my first and not my last obsession.
I have begged, borrowed and swapped with over two dozen online and real life friends to complete the entire collection. I cut into my obsession and created this quilt which I love dearly for all of the beautiful colors, prints and the love I feel when I think of all of the friends that helped me to gather and create it.
I cut into my coveted stash. Have you?"
One of my favorite blocks: Grey Seeds set into Blue Daisy Dots - I had BARELY enough of the grey seeds to complete the two blocks that contain it. I would still LOVE any more of those and the blue seeds that I can get my hands on.
The quilt has a 2.5" ruffle binding around the entire perimeter. The quilt back is Pink Daisy Dots on top and Green posies on bottom with a "label" strip of Kona Snow between them. The "label" reads, "Obsession on Point ~ Pieced and Quilted by Violet Craft ~ June 2011". The label was digitized with Generations Embroidery Software and embroidered on a Janome Memory Craft 300E. You can also see that I left the selvages exposed around the quilt label strip for posterity. It was quilted using a loose free-motion stipple on my Bernina Virtuosa 155.
Special thanks to
. And everyone else who ever let me take their very last smidge of any print I could get my hands on. I am cooking up another quilt with those little smidges! I couldn't have done it without you all!
I love this quilt to pieces and hope it will be with our family for a very long time.
