38.5 Royal Red King’s Puzzle – Bloggers Quilt Festival EntryOctober 25, 2015
I had to highlight this wonderful quilt of mine at least one more time in honor of the Bloggers Quilt Festival hosted by Amy’s Creative Side
I have been thinking and wondering if this quilt should be entered in more than just this show, in addition to the Kansas City Quilt Festival last June, and the local guild show.
The quilt as I recall measures 80″ on each side and is very square. I haven’t thought of it as a two color quilt or a monochromatic quilt, but it really is.
The center is a color-modified version of the Pattern King’s Puzzle, in which I changed the background colors to accommodate my amount of the middle fabric. I have always been partial to red and black color combination.
Then, in between fabrics, I introduced unfilled piping to create the thin black line running from 10 minute block to 10 minute block.
This “glamour shot” was done at another quilting friend who did some quilting for me for two other quilts. This picture (below) was taken back in May before the quilt was bound before the Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival.
My quilt didn’t win anything at the Quilt festival, and I heard one or two nice comments, in particular when I was picking up my quilt at the end and someone could see the quilt & the maker together.
Judges comments were that they liked the dimensional elements to the quilt in particular – aka – the raised part of the 10 minute block, 5 minute block, and piping.
I also had a few out of town/state friends come and look at my quilt in person during the show, which still means the world to me!
Enjoy the festival!
