a new Angled finish

Tangential for Angled class

Tangential for Angled class

At last, it's finished!  I designed this quilt to showcase the angled sewing skills students hone in Angled class.  The quadruple medallion layout and black/white triangles were inspired by an Anthropologie quilt.  From that basic idea I worked in simple triangles, diamonds, flying geese and complex angles so my students can make part of the quilt during each week of class. 

I remember finishing the quilt top just in time to share it on registration day, with no time to spare for quilting.  Then, between not knowing how to quilt it and not wanting to mess up the job after doing such careful work on the piecing, I let the quilt top linger for quite some time unfinished.  Encoring Angled class was the impetus I needed to push towards a finish.  Registration for Angled is open now, with class starting on Monday the 18th!

This winter Emily of Emerson Quilting came to my rescue!  She's the only longarm quilter I've worked with, when she did fantastic work on my Sparklers queen size quilt long ago.  I've had trouble imagining how Tangential should be quilted, so I asked Emily to do straight lines, preferably on diagonal.

Tangential for Angled class

Boy did she deliver!  I could not have imagined anything this beautiful.  There are simple diagonal lines cutting through the half square triangles and extending to the border, forming a grid over the flying geese portions of the quilt.  She quilted extra angles around the prominent elements: the stars blocks and half star row.  It's gorgeous!  I was wary that custom quilting would take over, as I don't tend to like quilting that's really busy, but Emily struck a nice balance.  Thank goodness some people have the talent to use quilting to enhance in this way!  I wanted Tangential to have a special finish.  This is everything I hoped for.

The only downer is that our dog, who's just about one year old now, got a hold of the package when it was delivered back from Emily.  She loves to destroy... everything, so we are careful to keep packages out of the dog's reach.  Unfortunately, it arrived when I was out of town with baby for medical reasons (yes, sadly another hospitalization).  There's only one spot that has a tiny hole on the front, but on the back that spot is noticeable and deserves patching.  After all this quilt has been through and I have been through lately, I can't add that to my plate.  So, I'd like to gift this quilt to one of you, dear readers.

Tangential for Angled class

Would you have a home for this queen-sized quilt?  Do you promise to love it and use it?  Can you give it a little patch love on the back?  And, lastly, are you able to cover the shipping to your door?  I will ship it anywhere, but it does weigh a good bit so shipping internationally would be quite pricey.

If you'd like to give Tangential a home, add your comment to this post.  I'll draw a random winner on Monday afternoon, EST and be in touch via email to get your address for the shipping quote.

Good luck!

I've just now drawn our winner.  I'm trying to get in touch with the commenter Mr. Random selected.  If it doesn't work out, I'll just draw again until it does work.  Wish I could have sent it to each one of you!

  7. I've never had a quilt made by another person, I can't imagine how lovely it would be! It would definitely be well loved in our home (My husband and the dog often steal our two bigger quilts, leaving me to fend for myself! Lol). And what an honor to patch it and have my mark on such a lovely creation as well. Thank you for being so generous and giving your quilt to a new home!

  8. I would be honored to give your beautiful quilt a place in my home! (It even matches my bedroom!) And I would certainly be able to patch it. One of the reasons I took up quilting (and crocheting) was to be able to repair pieces that my great grandmothers made. Thank you for the opportunity to give this quilt a home!

Our thoughts and prayers are with you daily.

  30. What a stunning quilt, and what a generous, lovely way to deal with what is overwhelming in your life, to offer what will be such a thing of beauty elsewhere. I'm just getting back into sewing, after years away, and would love to have this inspiration. Also, I just found your blog, and reading your posts about Eleni--I am so touched by all that you bring to her, and she to you. Prayers for you all.

  31. What a beautiful gift! I would love to repair it and pass it on. My very best friend is in need of love, support, and warm hugs as she finalizes her divorce and begins life as a single mom of 2 beautiful girls. I would love to repair the damage and gift it to her. I can't be near her now (we live 2 states apart), and I think this would be a beautiful stand-in until I can hug her in person.

  38. Rachel, the quilt is beautiful and I'm so sorry your pup got hold of it. It's what puppies do, though. :-( Don't pick my name. I only have a double bed and wouldn't be able to use it, but it turned out so great. I know someone will love having it.

  39. Wow what a wonderful and beautiful quilt. The quilting is outstanding and complements the piecing and design. I have a queen sized bed and have been through a rough patch the last 7 months and would love to patch this quilt back and promise to use and love it.

    By the way, my dog used to embellish my clothing with the same technique. He has outgrown it, and I hope yours does soon.
    Wishing you and Eleni and everyone in your family all good things.

  55. A wonderful quilt that already received so much thought and care from you. I should very much like to give it a new home here on my living room couch in Berlin if luck should favour me. =) Thank you for your generosity.

  56. I would love very much to have Tangential on my bed, and I promise to take good care of it and pet it many times. The straight line quilting really brings out some great textures! Tangential was a big motivator for me to take the Angles class, but due to other commitments, I'm unable at this time. (I did register for Color Intensive though.) My heart goes out to you and Eleni, and I hope she is recovering well.

  106. Oh, Rachel, choosing to "part" with such a lovely quilt must have been very hard - especially in the midst of all the other "hard" things you and Eleni and the family are going through right now. After your hopeful report on Eleni's progress recently I was also hopeful for you all. I continue to bring all of you before the Father each day as I take my prayer walk. My heart goes out to you and especially for Eleni as you do your very best for her and your family. Virtual Hugs to you. I would be delighted to have this wonderfully beautiful quilt and would promise to give it a very good home here in Central CA. You can come and visit it any time you're in the area. The quilting did turn out just spot on perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  127. I have been in love with this quilt since you first showed it on your blog. It is one of the things that has especially inspired me to take your angled class this time around - because I really want to make this quilt. Of course, there wouldn't be any harm in having two of these quilts (yours and mine!) in our house (other than the fact that mine might suffer in comparison). In any case, I can more than promise that your quilt would be loved and cherished in our house, and it would immediately become the main quilt on my and my husband's bed. The one that is there currently is a little small and is getting quite worn. No matter where this quilt goes, I am sending you love and warm wishes. I hope Eleni is healing.
    (oh, And I would patch it. And I can pay shipping.)

  136. Are you sure you don't want to just put it in the closet for a few months to let everything settle and then decide? I'm sure all of us would understand if you didn't give it away -- you seemed to love it so much after it was finished. That said, could I (or someone else) fix it for you, or do you just need to get out of the house because it has the wrong kind of memories associated with it? I shouldn't even be asking you all these questions, you certainly don't have to answer, I just don't want you to regret giving it away. sarah@forrussia.org

  140. The quilt is gorgeous! I just discovered your site yesterday, and I've fallen in love with all your beautiful quilts. I'm a fairly new quilter--I'm beginning to discover that there is healing power in the process of creating. Your story of your daughter really struck a chord, as I have a son (now 5) who has a myriad of medical challenges (trach, feeding tube, lots of surgeries--up to something like 37 or 38 times under anesthesia). I needed an outlet that wouldn't take me away from the home, as babysitters aren't an option in our house, and sewing has become that for me. I just signed up for your Color Intensive class, which I'm really excited about. This quilt is gorgeous! (I hear you on how difficult it can be, when you are dealing with so much already, to add just one more thing to your plate. There have been times when I've put that "one more thing" aside for awhile and have been able to come back to it much later in a better frame of mind. Many other times--probably more often!--when I never managed to pull it off.) Thank you for inspiring me--both in your beautiful quilts and in the beautiful story of your daughter--she's adorable, by the way!

  156. Eleni and your family continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. I would love the chance to own this quilt. It would get a wonderful home. My daughter and I are looking at quilt patterns to make something similar. The holidays were pretty rough here this year. My husband has been in the hospital twice recovering from back surgery. Our new puppy was hit and killed by a car two days before Christmas. She had been his Father's Day gift. What little Christmas spirit I was able to muster this year went right out the window. We are all hoping for a more healthy and happier New Year. Hugs to you! (smflks at gmail dot com)

  169. I feel like I have been stalking you via your blog, I read them all the time and am so disappointed if I try too often and you haven't posted anything. All your sewing, not only quilts are inspirational and they have inspired me back to sewing and quilting now that I've retired from full time, (paid!!) work, but I am far too impatient and lazy to be very good, which I am trying hard to curb, still somewhat unsuccessfully but I am having such fun and satisfaction. Your beautiful quilt is a reminder what we can achieve and my own justification for mistakes or errors unknown is that Amish quilts are never perfect, because we aren't either (that's my take on it anyway) and if dogs and lesser mortals add character then that's that way of the world and who are we not to accept imperfection?

  170. I would absolutely give this quilt a loving home. I've only just begun to quilt myself, and while queen-sized is on the docket, I'm a little nervous still!

    Thank you thank you thank you for the chance for such a piece of art!

  171. Oh, Rachel, I would love to make a home for this beauty! I took the angled class and have two quilts that need to be quilted from that. I didn't make this one though and would love to have it as a momento of the class and the admiration I have for you. Thanks for your generosity!

  184. Oh my goodness! We would love to give your quilt a great home! And thank you for the perspective - I woke up grumpy at 5:45 because our new foster decided to start making quiet but noticeable yipping noises. At least she hasn't interfered with anything so precious as a quilt!!!

  185. I would LOVE to have one of your artworks at my home, on the Frenc Riviera... although I don't know how it would cost to have it shipped from South Carolina to France ;) I'll give it a try and hope Eleni is ok now <3

  187. Boy, do I understand about puppies. Our most recently added dog is a chewer in a way none of our others have been. I've patched a few quilts since we got him, and I think I'll be learning to reupholster a couch. But not until he's outgrown this stage. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  188. This is very generous!! I would certainly take mighty good care of it!! I'm so sorry to hear that you were hospital with Eleni again. Hugs and prayers sent your way!

  189. Patching it will be an honor and a pleasure as will loving it. I have just rearranged the guest room, new bed, box spring and mattress and was pondering what the quilt would be, the colors and style of tangential will go nicely and it will be well loved by myself and and our special guests.

  190. I love this quilt! I recently gave away a quilt that I worked on for years after it was washed with a bleach pen. I patched the spots (as it was going to a non quilter) but it was heart wrenching (actually had a mild panic attack when I saw the damage!) and I was so relieved to see the thing out the door! But I love th is quilt and would love to have it in my home. I have admired it forever!
