The Bedroom Allegory Quilt

This one has been mentioned a couple to times, you can see it in progress here and here, but it has since been quilted, so here's a little update on that.

I wanted to go totally Art Deco with it, pure abstract, although I do regard it as an allegory, I'm just not saying what of, suffice it to say it was meant for the bedroom.

As the shapes are quite simple I wanted to add detail with quilting using a lot of variations on pebbles, spirals, arches and s-curves.


The quilt design is symmetrical, so the quilting had to be symmetrical, too, but I went by the eye, without any templates, so it has "natural imperfections".



I used six shades of Aurifil for the coloured parts, they blended in nicely. Most of the background was quilted in black, with a little bit of colour "spillover" on top.

I even had a little late-night photoshoot with it, to bring out even more drama. Look how a different light direction highlights the quilting texture.
