Malerie made this quilt for her husband and requested 'manly' quilting - not a lot of feathers and frills.
I ended up doing all ruler work which is slow-going but she was happy with the result.
I had to put a few feathers in, just in the center Mariner's Compass block.
Years ago I made this quilt, Red Deco, and still had many ideas for another quilt inspired by Art Deco. This quilt was purchased for the IQA Corporate Collection by Karey Bresenhan which is a real honor but ... I miss my quilt!
I raided my stash of metallic fabrics and threads to make a new Art Deco style quilt.
This is my new little quilt Sunflower Deco. It just went to it's first show, Pacific International Quilt Festival and received no recognition from the judges. I'm disappointed but will just have to send it on to the next show and hope for better news next time!
