Blogger's Quilt Festival - Dancing in the Wind

Sorry to those who already saw this quilt (very recently), but it is my favourite project of the year and so I just have to enter it into Blogger's Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side.

It's very simple piecing with some blocks featuring a bit of hand embroidery and 3D appliqué - my latest craze.


Here are all the little ballerinas who are dancing in the wind:







The triangles are made of blender fabrics with subtle floral/botanical prints and quilted with wonky triangle spirals, which creates a nice texture. And it's all as bright as it can be - just the way I love it.

I recently encountered a quote by J.W. Goethe, which goes: "...savage nations, uneducated people and children have a great predilection for vivid colours". I'm still wondering which of these categories I belong to...



Thanks for visiting and do check out all the quilts in the Blogger's Quilt Festival - some fabulous stuff there!

  1. I love this quilt! The bright colors are wonderful (I'm also more likely than not to use them!) and I love the three dimensional skirts. At first I thought they were silk flowers repurposed, but fabric is even better!

  2. This is super cute! The brighter the better- maybe we fit in to the savage nation. Ha.

  7. Oh please do not apologize. I must have been living under a rock because this is the first time I am seeing this. I am sure because this is not a quilt I'd forget. I love the gorgeous bright colors in the background. But the ballerinas are the stars of this quilt. I love how each one has a different pose, different dress, hairstyle and personality. I am completely impressed!!! Love each one of them.

  11. How precious are these ballerinas! I love the whimsy of them all and your title is perfect.
    I'm certain that Goethe, and everyone else of the 1700s, did not care much about whimsy and color. He wrote Faust, so what could you expect?
