Blog Quilt Show Entry - Genesis 1: 3,4

 Genesis 1:3,4
 And God said, " Let there be light", and there was light.  God saw that the light was good and  
He separated the light from the darkness.
54" by 54"
Machine pieced/Hand quilted
Commercial and hand dyed cotton

Once again, another great idea from a blogger - hosting a blog quilt show.  Clever huh?!  I thought I would the use the opportunity to post one of the quilts I made a few years ago, Genesis 1:3,4.  It is the last patterned quilt I had made, coming from  McCall's magazine.  I really haven't done any patterned work for years and years, but I saw this and thought - Gee if the colors were placed better this quilt could really pop.  Plus I loved the size.   It was a great exercise in value and it was really nice to leave all the design decisions up to someone else. It has a ton of hand quilting in it  - all done in - Gasp! - rayon thread.  I had no problem hand quilting with the rayon and it really gave it a nice shine.  Since it was meant for a wall, I wasn't worried about strength and wear.

Lovely job, It must have been such a challeng to find those fabrics. I've trying to find a set of graduated blues and am having the worst time!
