Let's Go Party

As New Year's Eve approaches, here's a dazzling contemporary quilt which reflects the fun and festivity of celebrating the arrival of 2014. We wish you a safe and Happy New Year, filled with joy, peace, and prosperity.

Let's Go Party, 77 x 78", by Keiko Ike, Kochi-city, Japan

Blue ribbon winner for Best of Country at the 2013 Pacific International Quilt Festival, Keiko notes, "I tried to express circles with narrow lines [of cloth]. While I was cutting the colorful fabric, it inspired me [to think of] colorful dresses at a party.  A lot of [brightly colored] fabric made this quilt fun !"   This quilt reminds us of streamers and confetti floating in the midnight sky as the calendar changes to the New Year.

Keiko's original design is machine pieced, machine appliqued, and machine quilted. She has done an excellent job of selecting pure solid hues which really "pop" against the dark background. Notice the variety of quilting patterns displayed here which add to the spontaneous and intriguing design.
