I made this quilt a while ago but haven’t posted it before ‘cos I was saving it for Amy’s Quilt Festival. However I just can’t seem to link to it (being a bit techno challenged! If you want to see some great quilts, you’ll find some at “http://amyscreativeside.com/” Click on the festival button and hey presto.
My crazy quilt was inspired by wanting to capture the look of cross section slides of muscle striations – those red cells look amazing under the microscope. I wanted to practise some embroidery stitches as well as having a quilt to work on in the evenings, so making up crazy quilting blocks then embellishing each join filled in many winter months. Every time I look at this quilt, the vibrant reds and hours I spent doing it give me a real buzz!
