Convergence Reveal

converg 013 

Today is the reveal day for our Fiberactions on-line challenge. The word for this time around was “Convergence”. I had a bit of a mental block happening because all I could think of was Ricky Tims’ pattern by the same name.

I finally had a “Convergence” of the above piece of furniture, with an idea, & a little inspiration from the book below,for the background quilting.

Several designs in the book were of the same era as the furniture, showed large leaves or florals (like this William Morris wall paper) with smalls leaves & floral backgrounds. Which is what I took inspiration from for my border quilting.

Below is the finished quilt. An oil paint stick rubbing on fabric, quilted with 2 layers of batting to give the featured designs a traupunto effect without the effort of cutting away a layer.

Binding was inspired by Laura Wasilowski.

Lovely piece Deb- I had the same thought when you said Convergence because I have made half a dozen convergence quilts.. It is a fun pattern but is a totally different form than yours..
Thanks for sharing your wonderful work.
