Cruciform Series: Green

Since I have been so excited about the sketches I have been making, I thought I would show the sketch along with the quilt. I use the drawing as a guide, not the LAW. As the top is constructed, I am hanging it up on the design wall to check my progress and make changes. This one had lots of changes before it reached this final result.


Cruciform Series: Green

Hand Dyed Cottons 61x68"

It is not quilted yet, but is pillowcased and all ready. I will have to wait til Sunday to start on it and the big red one. All I think I can get done will be the stitch in the ditch part. I have to bring them with me on Wednesday to our PAQA meeting. I haven't been since August, and this is a very important meeting, since we will be filmed by Wisconsin Public TV and I must look productive. They are coming to my house for the day on Thursday. Dave better start vacuuming now.

Since my fabric is all fused before I start, when the top is finished I can just place it on the freshly pressed batting and fuse it in place. I used the 12" floor tiles to help me square off the monstrous thing, as cutting and measuring it on the table did not yield even measurements, either the first or second time.

Thanks so much for your many good wishes for our anniversary. We had a lovely day and took our 'now' picture with the camera's timer. This is the fourth try. The second one was pretty good, except for cutting off Dave's head.

The newest scarf is purple!!
Today Frieda and Laura and I are going to a sale at Quilter's Resources in Chicago. They are a wholesale supply house and are moving to Aurora IL and want to reduce their inventory. We are just the gals to help them out. They sell knitting needles too. O my!

  1. Melody,

    That is my favorite quilt you've ever made...and I love all of them. I just called Jim over to the screen to show him, and he said, "That's brilliant!"

    You really knew where you were going with this cruciform thing. I love green and this quilt speaks to my heart.

  2. Melody,

    How come you decided to square off the edges, instead of making them irregular, as you did in your sketch? (I just made the same decision on a quilt I'm working on, and I'm not sure why I did)

  3. This new quilt is fabulous, Melody! It would seem you've really hit your stride, haven't you?
    And happy anniversary (a day late) to you and Dave. Could the two of you look any happier?

  7. This new green quilt is fabulous also, and I love seeing all your drawings from the sketchbook. They're art also, maybe you should frame them, unlike my sketches which are usually pretty blecky.

  8. Melody, I really love the drawings of your quilt ideas. They have a life of their own and are works of art all by themselves. When you have your retrospective one woman show, will you hang both quilts and drawings?

    I'm totally jealous of your being on television. What show will you be on and when will it be aired?

  9. This green piece is very good. I love the composition. I feel that the placement of the cross to the background is perfect scale. You are definitely on to something. Congrats on fighting through it.
