Bloomfield United


Made for the Re-Vision challenge of the Quilter's Guild of the British Isles to celebrate our 40th anniversay.  All quilts had to be based on the Bloomfield coverlet (see my photos) - not a piece I warmed to.  From show 2202 I had the idea to make kaleidoscopes from various parts of the coverlet's surface using ScopeWorks.  I printed selected ones using EQ printables.  Then I stacked them on a background before quilting the whole piece.  The edges I quilted in narrow straight lines - so boring I fell asleep whilst doing it - luckily I was quilting outwards at the time but my head hit the sewing machine with a thwack.
