This quilt is also the result of a class at Quilt Camp in the Pines, but it was from July of 2002. The class was Jan Krentz's Summer Salsa, though I've renamed my version since my husband thinks this one is "colorful". ;) Jan teaches wonderful classes; she's very organized and gives lots of information and help. I finished most of the inner star points and one rocket block during the two-day class, then brought everything home and finished the rest in the course of the next few weeks, substituting simpler corners for Jan's original ones in order to spotlight the focus fabric I'd chosen. Then I was at an impasse trying to decide how I wanted to quilt it! I finally bit the bullet and machine quilted it in January, 2003. I used a variegated rayon thread for all of the quilting except for some angular lines in four black corner sections; those were done with a bright yellow rayon. All of the quilting was done free-motion style. The quilt measures 46" square.
This quilt also went into our
in April, 2003, and it also
won a ribbon! It took third place in its category, so here it is
wearing its award:
