This will come as a surprise to many, but Scattered is actually the name of the quilt. It is a rare day that I don't use this to describe myself though!!
This most fantabulous modern and graphic quilt was made by designer Jackie Kunkel (CantonVillage Quilt Works). Jackie deserted us in New England this past summer for much warmer and greener pastures in AZ, but I am the lucky quilter that still gets to quilt some of her pieces. It doesn't get much better than that.
She has a fabric line and set of six (I think) patterns that will be in these fabrics, designed for Island Batiks. She couldn't have pegged my perfect colors much better. I like to say "You had me with orange"...sort of the line from the move "You had me with hello". I quilted this in the early summer, and have been very impatiently waiting fall market when I can finally show pictures.
Those that know me know that I am much more of a traditional quilter. This is my comfort zone -- that happy place. Modern quilts sometimes leave me staring like the proverbial dear in the headlights. The reality though is that this one did at first, but then I decided I would take the sketches of dense fills I give to my Dense & Dainty students, and just start quilting.
My students from last week will remember many of these fillers...
