Tropical Convergence

On December 12, 2014, I posted a photo of what I called a Tropical Fruit French Braid Quilt.  Some of the floral fabric was left over, so I used it to make a “convergence” quilt, along with three other pieces of fabric.  The pattern and directions for this come from Ricky Tims’ book, Convergence Quilts, Mysterious, Magical, Easy and Fun:

Tims’ book is a delight to look at, regardless of whether you are making a quilt or not.  This very out-of-the-box technique involves sewing fabrics together, cutting them into strips, and mixing the strips in a new configuration – twice!  The results are mind blowing.

After making this one quilt, it figured it “needed something”, so looked through my library of embroidery designs, and found the perfect thing.  In the photo, the applique has not yet been cut out or applied – this is the “audition”.  I am quite pleased!  This will go on my etsy store in January, 2015.
