Slow Dance

Pin It

Slow Dance

This is my "Slow Dance" quilt, and is featured in this May 2015 American Quilter magazine. 

This quilt was inspired by the traditional Tennessee Waltz pattern, with a few modifications.

You might recognize the design from another quilty friend of mine, Lee of Freshly Pieced, because she has an almost identical pattern. She and I made the quilts completely separately of one another -- just both liked the way the clever piecing creates the illusion of curves! (And Lee uses paper piecing for part of hers, while I use templates and rotary cutting). My quilt was slated to be published in an upcoming magazine, and she used hers for the DS solids competition -- no bad feelings or scandal here... we assure you! :)




For quilting, I did swirls in the white negative space, and an orange peel type design in the colored diamonds. This is absolutely one of my favorite quilts! 

This is the palette inspiration for my color choices (from design seeds.com), along with the backing fabric (my favorite!)

Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening. I appreciate
you taking the time and effort to put this content together.
I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting.
But so what, it was still worthwhile!

Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace. See the link below for more info.
