Twin Sized – Geese Fly Free As Feathers Fall Over the Homestead
This quilt is a traditional log cabin quilt made with a red square in the center of each block (representing the heart of the home, the hearth) and a variety of black and white fabric ‘logs’ arranged in a straight furrows pattern, with a twist.
Across the quilt top 3-dimensional red “geese” fly free (i.e. they are not sewn down on the hypotenuse) in straight furrows on the opposite diagonal.
For the non-quilter, ‘geese’ are generally recognized as triangle shaped pieces, representing the triangle formation geese fly in when migrating.
Yes, there can be lots of symbolism found in quilts.
So why are their feathers falling, you might ask? In this quilt, the quilting stitches take on a feather shape as they fall down across the diagonal furrows.
Measuring 72” wide by 84” high, this quilt looks stunning atop a twin-sized bed.
Entered in the “open” 2011 Northern Shenandoah Valley Quilt Show, this quilt won 3rd Place in the Log Cabin – Show Challenge category.
Twin Sized – Blue Ridge – Outback the Shenandoah
Inspired by the fabrics themselves, which remind me of the cool flowing waters of our cherished Shenandoah River and the blue ridges and lush green plants and trees in our majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, this quilt is twin-bed sized (68” wide by 90” long) and generously allows for a 12” drop on three sides.
It also has a sleeve on the back that would allow it to hang as a featured piece of art on a large wall.
This quilt also has the unique distinction of being a published work of art. It is included in Clarke’s Great Outdoors book, benefiting The Piedmont Environmental Council. [Book released in October, 2018.]
Twin Sized – Warp and Weft
This quilt is made with a variation on the traditional “split rails” quilt pattern. Large enough for a twin-sized bed (75.5″ x 64″), this quilt also makes for a very generously sized lap quilt.
In it, I used a luscious new batting made from environmentally friendly natural fibers [bamboo, silk, cotton, and tencel (from eucalyptus) giving it softness, strength, warmth, and breathability. It is warm in the winter and cool in the summer].
Twin Sized – Freedom to Fly – Clear Skies & Tail Winds
This quilt is perfect for someone with a love of flying!
Made with patriotic cottons and flannels, whether on a bed or lap, it will keep its owner cozy and warm.
Measuring 74” by 104 in height, on a bed there is plenty of length to enwrap the pillow.
