Phoenix was created as part of the Quilt Design A Day group. At the time I was intimidated by both designing and piecing with curves. I spent a month creating a curve design every day, and this was one of my favorites. After the month was over I was comfortable designing with curves, and it pushed me to face my fears of piecing with them. I titled this Phoenix because the strong colors and shapes are reminiscent of the rebirth of a phoenix and represented growing past my fears.
This quilt was selected to be the Modern Quilt Guild’s Quilt of the Month for September 2015.
This quilt was selected as part of the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild show at the Towson Arts Collective and will be on display at QuiltCon 2016.
