After 3 weeks and 3 quilts, here is the one I finally finished for the 2017 Quilt Alliance contest. The first two quilts were OK, but I like this one best, so off it goes.
The contest theme this year is “voices”. As I made this little maze, I thought of college students in their world of endless possibilities, talking all night about the meaning of life. I thought the bright colors and the maze were a good representation of that.
The fabric is Cherrywood hand dyes, except for the bright yellow, which is a batik. I presume it is obvious that I cut everything with scissors and improvised the piecing as I went along. I quilted it on my Bernina, using lightweight medium grey thread to lend texture without showing too much.
Next week: a quilt to use as a wedding guest book. Thanks for visiting!
