To meet the 2017 QuiltCon charity quilt challenge of crafting a design that plays with scale, the four Blue Moon Quilters members (Renee @Quilts of a Feather, Afton @Quilting Mod, Sara @Blue Quail Studio, and Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl) determined that we wanted to base the quilt design on a traditional block: Storm at Sea. Collaborating together, we created a design that uses the Storm at Sea block in four different sizes. We cultivated the palette down to four colors, and out of our collaboration a quilt was created that is better than any one of us could have created on our own. Fabric supplied by Michael Miller Fabrics, thread from Aurifil, and batting from The Warm Company.
Today, I am absolutely thrilled to share with you our finished quilt: Four Greater Than One.
The last time I worked on this quilt was in August when I worked with Renee on our Oregon sewing retreat, and it looked like this:
The other three members of the Blue Moon Quilters live in Albuqueque, so after Sara and Afton made the remaining paper pieced blocks, they were able to get together and work on piecing the top and basting the quilt.
Then Renee performed her quilting magic. I am not going to share any more detailed images, you will have to visit Renee and Afton (links at the top and bottom of this post) for more details. I am crazy proud to have been a part of this collaboration, and I can’t wait to get a photo of the four of us standing by this quilt hanging at QuiltCon.
Speaking of being part of the collaboration, it was hard doing the up front work and knowing that I would not be available to help with the finishing details. I am super grateful to this group for the effort and care that everyone put in to make the quilt a reality.
Seriously, go check out more details about this quilt today!!
