It may have been a grey, dreary cold day in Duluth but members of the Lake Superior Modern Quilt Guild grabbed their brightest quilts, bundled up, and gathered for a walkabout around Duluth's iconic Aerial Lift Bridge!
Check out the Duluth News Tribune article on the colorful walkabout:
Duluth quilters strut stuff in Canal Park
Alane Davis, “Lu-pine” designer
#igquiltfest Today’s prompt is Solid Love ...I totally recognize that I rarely work with only solids. But this quilt holds a special place in my heart. Based on the lupine flowers that grow wild in the woods and along the roadsides in northern Minnesota, my design was chosen by my local guild to be our #charityquilt for #quiltcon2019. The color palette was determined by the Modern Quilt Guild as well as the theme which was tiny piecing. Through the making of this quilt I became even closer to all the guild members who participated in its construction. The amazing quilting was done by @mctavishio at McTavish Quilting Studio 💜 It is a very special quilt indeed filled with great people and great memories.
I was so thrilled to visit our guild’s charity quilt at #quiltcon ! This quilt is very special to all of us because it was a true group effort. The piecing of this quilt was done by many hands and it was directed in large part by a very dear friend and guild member who recently passed away. This quilt embodies her spirit. Beautiful, complicated, full of life, and representative of so much rugged, natural beauty that each of us who lives here in the Northland hold so dear. For me anyway, our quilt, Lu-pine, will always be a clear, beautiful memory of her. And it was made even more special by the unique, artistic quilting of the one and only @mctavishio resulting in the perfect symbiosis of piecing and quilting. We are all very grateful that our quilt was included in the current issue of #quiltconmagazine . You can learn more about the inspiration behind it’s design there. 💚💙💜
