Pink Saturday

Convergence Quilt

Welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.  Check out her blog for a list of all participants this week.  Also I'd like to recommend Barb at Dog Mom Diva.  Pay her blog a visit and check out her Pink Saturday Posts.




This week I've decided to feature one of my Convergence Quilts.  The Convergence Quilt was designed by quilter, Ricky Tims. 

Isn't this fabric great.  The fabric was purchased a great little quilt shop in Kentucky, Granny's Attic.  Unfortunately Granny's was a victim of the economy and closed it doors last summer.  I was forturnate to purchase a large selection of fabric prior to the store's closing. 

I just love the look of a convergence quilt.  I have embellished the quilt by adding appliques of flower petals and leaves to the outer edge of the quilt.  You can see this in the photo above.  I took flower petals and leaves and made it appear that the flower was cascading onto the quilt center from the border.  I'm using the same technique on a Nine Patch Pizzaz that I'm currently quilting.  I love to quilt and hope you enjoy seeing one of my creations.  Happy Pink Saturday.

Wow Pam! This quilt is stunning and the design is perfect for the fabrics. Love the way you pulled the flower petals into the quilt over the border. Give it such depth. I met Ricky Tims at the Houston Quilt Festival several years ago. He is a very talented designer and quilter....Sue

Hey Pam....The pattern for the apron is Simplicity 2492. Very easy. I lined the shoulder straps, pockets and front down to the pockets...other than that it's made as per pattern instructions. Glad you liked it...isn't that cowgirl fabric cute. It's from Moda and is called 'Rawhide'....glad I lined it! LOL....Sue

That is beautiful work on the quilt. Sorry to hear about Grandma's Attic store closing. It is sad with the Mom & Pop stores have to suffer, while the big bankers get to live it up on our Bail-out money.

I'm glad we visited this Pink Monday. I hope you have a great weekend!!
