A refreshingly, stunning piece of quilted fiber wall art will look fabulous in any room of the house. This piece is sure to be a conversation starter - with it's combination of a large scale printed orange poppy flower, a flying humming bird and flower print and even a stripe! To top it off - yo-yo's and mirrors dance across the piece to add even more movement!

Approximate Size: 34" x 21"

This piece was accepted into and hung at the 2011 Quilt Expo in Madison, WI.

There is a hanging sleeve on the back of the quilt to make for easy display.

This piece is currently hanging in a show at Java Dock in Port Washington, WI. Please feel free to still purchase it but it will not be able to be shipped until January 15th, 2015.

The Story Behind the Quilt:

Spring Converges - my entry for the Large Scale Print Challenge in Project QUILTING (http://kimscraftyapple.blogspot.com/p/sponsors_14.html)

I used some fun fabrics to create a converged wall hanging for this challenge. I chose to converge 'White Humming Birds' from Michael Miller, Laura Gunn's Big Poppy Spice fabric and a striped fabric.

If you've been watching my pieces through the Project QUILTING seasons I've done convergence before - so I knew when I decided that this is what I wanted to do for this challenge I knew it would have to be above and beyond the past. I went with combining a few of Ricky Tim's techniques from his book Ricky Times Convergence Quilts: Mysterious, Magical, Easy and Fun- with Divide and Conquer Convergence with a touch of Grand Convergence. I think the convergence technique really appeals to me because you have to really trust your gut that your fabric choices are going to work. There’s not much ‘laying’ out prior to cutting to be able to ‘see’ what’s going to happen – it’s all about the gut. Once the convergence portion was done - I added the borders and appliqued some flowers and birds to the quilt. As I stepped back and looked at I decided it wasn't enough yet...

So, I made some yo-yo's and had them cascade across the quilt. To add the final touch - I found some tiny circular mirrors in my stash and glued them to the center of the yoyo flowers.

I really like all the movement this quilt creates.
