Nine Patch Kameleon
..made by Yvon Leuw, The Netherlands.
This is actually one of the most impressive Kameleon Quilts I have seen. The fabric colours are absolutely glowing, and I also think Yvon's story below adds to the glow.
I thought I could see from the picture below that the quilt was hand quilted, so I asked Yvon about that. Here is what she wrote to me:
'Yes I quilted it by hand and without a quiltring...
Since I had an
accident I can't work with a ring, my hands won't let me. For years I
couln't quilt by hand but now I found a way to quilt without a ring so I am
glad that the kameleon was the first quilt I quilted by hand....
It took a
year because I must stop every ten minutes to let my hands rest a while...
but I love quilting by hand now. If you look , you can see in the quilt that in
some parts the stiches are not small enough but at the end I succeeded in
small stiches. I don't mind because I can see the progress in my quilting....'
Well, I was not able to see anything amiss with the quilting anywhere. I am just so impressed with anyone who quilts by hand, and not least the Kameleon quilts with all their layers. That is an achievement in itself.
