Description

Finished and hung at Art Presence Gallery in Jacksonville, Oregon for June/July show, I named our creation Frida's Hallelujah. The theme of the art show is Celebration. This piece gets a lot of attention. People pick out different parts and touch them. It is bringing much joy to the viewers.

I love all the little details in this quilt. I would have missed them if you hadn't done the close ups. The turtles rushing to the sea are adorable.

Charwirfs

Seeneed Thank you. Those turtles may be my favorite too. But then, the owl in the palm tree is pretty cool, and the elephant, catfish, parrot, and kitty. It is so fun to watch people discover those details when they view it in the gallery.

Really nice finish, Charwirfs . I love the way it is quilted and the binding. It looks great all together, and I bet it is drawing plenty of attention in the show. You inspire me to finish mine.

Charwirfs

Sizzlewaggle Yes, finish it. I think all of the quilts we made are fabulous and I am hoping to see more finished. I have another one ready to quilt from a previous round, but I added more things to it after I got it back. I am looking forward to see some others finished.

This is absolutely gorgeous! What a piece of art! How big is it?

BlueFigQuilts

I loved working on this! What an amazing quilt! Nicely done!

Charwirfs

Thank you BlueFigQuilts Ibtreerock . Everyone really added power rounds each time. They had fun too. Anyway it added up to a 'Need to finish" quilt. I am glad I got it finished. Piecing the back took a little extra time, but I am pleased with the results. It is 45"by 40"...almost square. A great size for a wall art quilt.

I would love to know the beginning instructions for this piece that led everyone to go with what actually ends up looking totally planned. In this instance, great minds certainly do think alike. Congratulations on the gallery hanging.

Hello Quilterinmotion . It started with a snail trail block and I appliqued a Frida fussy cut to it. You know the drill... Improvi Round Robin. You had an incredible piece when you participated. It came together so beautifully. Did you ever finish it?

Sizzlewaggle

Quilterinmotion , what each person did was 'react' to what she received from the last person. It was so much fun. It got harder as time went on, and some of them, I got ideas from immediately, but the last couple I did I really had to sit with and stare at them for a long time before inspiration struck. Improvi-robin is a really fun exercise in letting yourself be spontaneous and working with what you are given by someone else. Char's quilt is really nice.

Charwirfs , I have it in the drawer in Florida. I will finish it this winter as this is my year to finish up projects...or give them away. I'm not giving the round robin project away!!!! Sizzlewaggle , I did the first one done here on TB; it definitely took me out of my comfort zone but I loved it and the final result I received back.

Sizzlewaggle

Quilterinmotion, Ah, then you know whereof I spoke-- and re-reading Char's message I see I missed that! One of my first plans in retirement is to finish mine. (August 15 and counting!)
