Bloggers Quilt Festival - Chai Rose Ikat Quilt

It has been years since I've entered the Bloggers Quilt Festival.  I tend to worry that I'll bore my readers with the required repetitive quilt posts, so here's hoping you don't mind.  I'm going to enter two quilts.  The first is my Chai Rose Ikat Quilt.

Ikat quilt for Color Intensive

I created this quilt for my most recent online class, Color Intensive.  It was inspired by this rug, with some changes to create nested secondary shapes.

It's one of those designs that looks equally well close up or far away.

This quilt design can be traditionally pieced or machine paper pieced.  No partial or y-seams at all!  For the full design story, see this post.  I also sell the pattern!

  3. Hi Rachel! I love this quilt! Even the colours are not my usual favourites, this quilt has something that really enjoy watching it - colours and pattern fit very well together and remind me of something - not sure what, perhaps Cross stitching. Your other entry is also most beautiful! x Teje

  11. I love this quilt. I don't know if I'll live long enough to ever actually make it (it took me forever just to make the single block for class, lol). Nonetheless, it is on my bucket list and in the interim I'll just admire yours. Good job!!
