Gwennie Inspired Medallion Exhibit

We are good to go for a First Friday Exhibit at Quiltworks for the month of May! I have the 5 of us who chose the rounds, Katy, Wendy, Cathy and Cynthia and myself and Juliann has committed her quilt.  There is  room for 8-12 quilts, depending on the size.  The first Friday in May is the 5th and she would need the quilts before the 1st. What I would need you to commit to is sending me your quilt before the end of April with a good description, and money for me to return your quilt after the quilts come down. They will be displayed for the whole month of May. Because there isn't room for all of the quilts to be shown, I will need to take them in the order you commit to the show. No hanging sleeves necessary. 

I better get mine completed! I only need to make a label and attach binding.


 I sent this quilt off to Sharon, Grass Roots Quilt Studio and we had a bit of back and forth with it. She really didn't want to do this style of quilting, but we are both glad she did! I didn't know what I wanted, but this was it!
 I'm sure I could have quilted this myself, but I'm not sure I would have had the guts to "just do it!" It has a modern, loose feel to it, that I really think suits the quilt very well.
The backing is a bit crazy and loose too!

 Be sure to contact me if you are interested in sharing your quilt at 
Quiltworks in Bend, Oregon for the month of May!

Here's my Instagram feed for the week. Enjoy your weekend!

  4. This will be fun! I love the quilting and that backing is superb! That Pilgrim Roy swirly neon fabric has always been one of my favorites. I'm down to one small piece left. Sure wish they would reprint that one!!

  5. Oh, I love your quilt and I think the quilting is just right. Folky and simple and doesn't compete with the design - I really like it! Thanks for setting up the exhibit - kind of thrilling! I have never been to Oregon but I will be able to say my quilt has;).

  9. A great idea, Lori! Glad it worked out. Wish I was going to be passing through Bend during the month of May, but I know at least you will share great photos with us.
    I think you and Sharon collaborated well on your quilt. The outcome couldn't be better!

  10. The quilting looks wonderful! Compliments it very well. I think it's exciting that the quiltalong quilts can be exhibited together! I look forward to seeing them together in pictures on your blog :0)

  11. WOW! LOVE your quilt and great backing fabrics! The quilting is perfect, too! What a great exhibit this will be! My Gwennie inspired quilt "Mind of It's Own" is almost ready to quilt, but ended up being large - like 80"x90" large! It had a mind of it's own, therefore the name!! lol
    I may be interested in sending mine your direction to exhibit, but would feel badly if, because of it's size, that it kicked out others that want to exhibit. Let me know if you need something this big :)

  12. Yeah to the exhibit. It will be fabulous yes I'm so glad we decided on this quilting. I had another client get the same thing right after this one and we both loved it, again. Thanks for stretching my boundaries!

  15. Ahhh.. Love how your quilt turned out! The quilting really is perfect for it. Funny how simple is sometimes better! Very exciting that you get to have an exhibit for these quilts.:)

  16. How neat. I'll be looking forward to seeing the exhibit. Mine is at the quilting stage, but can't commit due to other projects.

  17. The quilting is perfect and fits the quilt. I recognize the fabric on the back. That's an oldie, but still a goodie! The exhibit should be a fun one for people to see.

  18. Your quilt is beautiful, it glows with creativity and individualism. How fun to have a show!

  19. Very beautiful quilt, it would be a good thing to finish mine for the same date ...

  20. Your quilt looks so wonderful, Lori. I think the quilting is perfect for it. I wish I could participate in the quilt show (you're so good to arrange it) but my quilt is still lacking a border and I know I could not get it finished by May. I hope you'll take photos of all the quilts and share them with us, though. (I know we've seen progress photos but not finished photos.)

  21. I just adore this quilt! This is going to be a fabulous collection and I do hope you will share all the photos with those of us who can't make it in person. What a truly special event it will be!

  22. If I lived closer I'd add mine to the exhibit, but it's probably too expensive to it send by mail. It will be with you in spirit. Enjoyed sewing along - it really allowed me to be much more creative than most sew-alongs. Hope you will do another sometime.

  23. My Macabre Medallion will finish at about 64 x 80". Will that be too large for the exhibit?

    ReplyDelete
  24. My lib medallion is at 30" h x 26" w. It's ready for quilting and will get done this weekend, hopefully. Do you still need some quilts for the exhibit, and will this one work size-wise? Let me know, as I'm willing to send mine.

    I think yours turned out great! The quilting is so good (good for Sharon for stretching herself!) and I love that backing fabric.

    How cool that you've got an exhibit for the medallions! I wish I could be there to see it. Let me know if you want mine!
