When I posted my Across the Sea quilt yesterday, a couple of lovelies commented that they liked the bold and dramatic colours and prints I used. I hadn`t really thought about it before but this morning I got out this quilt top, which I hand pieced back in the spring (and had since been languishing in the cupboard) and basted it so now it`s ready for quilting when the right feet turn up in the post.
This quilt top is definitely colourful and in your face. I love it but it`s not everyone`s cup of chai. It isn`t shy and retiring. It`s saying, `Hey you, notice me!` As I sat on the floor amidst a couple of rioting 3 year olds, it got me thinking. Does our quilting style (or painting or photography styles) reflect our personality or is it a way for us to express a different unseen side of us? What`s your quilting style?
While you ponder this, pop over to lovely Susan`s house - she`s having a great giveaway of 8 Punctuation FQs and it ends next Friday.
