This year, the president asked the members to create a 12 x 12 inch quilt based on a song or song title. The quilt could be made with any technique, with or without embellishments. I pieced the top using my hand dyed indigo fabrics.
The nui shibori strips were fussy cut from a piece of indigo linen that I dyed in the summer, while the rest is cotton. I added a hint of gold to reference the trumpet that Miles Davis plays.
The quilt top was heavily quilted with straight lines using a walking foot.
Kind of Blue is a great album that contains a couple of songs with blue in the title including: Blue in Green and All blues. What’s your favourite song?
