Once a year, Amy of Amy’s Creative Side hosts the Blogger’s Quilt Festival (in the spring she hosts the #IGQuiltFest). Bloggers can share two quilts of their choosing by writing a new blog post for each quilt and linking to the festival link party. I always enjoy getting to see what is shared, so thanks to my long time followers for reading about this quilt again, and welcome to any new visitors!
Have you ever been in the desert and seen a shimmering mirage, blurring sand and sky? Have you ever looked out across the ocean or a lake and lost the reference for the horizon?
The Mirage quilt pattern is a modern minimal quilt design that is meant to represent that jumble of senses when horizon and distance are no longer sharp and instead we enjoy the shimmering and dancing uncertainty. You can find the pattern in the companion magazine for the 2019 Quilter’s Planner.
A mix of Carolyn Freidlander prints were perfect for capturing the colors and mood I wanted to establish for this quilt, and I am excited to see the interlocking rings of color that others create with the design.
These photographs of the Mirage quilt were taken on El Mirage Dry Lake Bed using my Quilt Photography Tool.
Please visit the Blogger’s Quilt Festival over at Amy’s Creative Side taking place September 17 – 24, 2018, where you can post two of your quilts (new blog posts written this week) and see the other beautiful quilts entered in the festival.
