“The Difference Between Things”, by Victoria Findlay Wolfe

Customer Quilts | August 11, 2017 | By

I LOVE this quilt by Victoria Findlay Wolfe! It is currently being exhibited at the Festival of Quilts in the U.K. The exhibit is called, “Victoria Findlay Wolfe:Traditions Made Modern”. I’m so excited for Victoria and the adventures she is having. How cool to have an entire exhibit with your name on it!!! You go girl!!

I quilted this quilt for her last summer and had forgotten about it until it showed up in my Facebook feed this morning! What a surprise! It’s hanging in Birmingham, UK, August 10-13. I hope some of you will be visiting what looks to be a fabulous show!

Victoria and I met a few years ago when she visited my quilt guild in Lawrence, KS, and also did a workshop. I typically sew the way she does, improvisational and never follow a pattern! I loved her workshop and always try to get in ’15 minutes of play’ when I’m home and near my machine.

She had asked me to quilt this quilt in the spirit of artist, Matisse. I had SO much fun with each area, using bits and pieces from his artwork.

It’s such an interesting quilt and you’ll need to see it close up to really understand the Matisse influence.

 

 

There was an incredible amount of ruler work on this one, but then again, I LOVE ruler work, so WIN WIN!!

 

I hope you will get to see this in person one day. It’s just fun! Have a lovely weekend folks, especially those of you attending the Festival of Quilts.

    Very cool! I noticed you even put little figures in the quilting designs.

    What is the difference between a long arm ruler and a ruler for a domestic home machine?

      Usually none. You want them both to be 1/4″ thick acrylic. If you see one with a notch, like I sell, you would only use that for a longarm machine where the whole machine moves.
