Finished! Ann's Are We There Yet? quilt

>> Tuesday, January 4, 2011

Recently Zonnah emailed me with a quilt she wanted me to feature. She is in the Snip.Sew.Send Virtual Quilting Bee and one of her fellow bee members, Ann, completed this great map quilt.  Thanks, Zonnah, for pointing out this great quilt to me!

"Map" quilt

Ann sent everyone a fat quarter of Alexander Henry's "This Land is Your Land" fabric and gave the instructions: "I would like to ask for “Map” blocks. They can be interpreted as loosely as you want. It can be a map from your kitchen to your sewing machine, a map of the stars, a map of your city or state, anything you want. The same goes for technique. Embroidery, piecing, applique, painting, whatever you enjoy doing."

She included notes on the back of the quilt containing information about each person that made a block for her on printable fabric.

The finished quilt is gorgeous and each block is stunning in it's individuality!

This quilt is definitely something that Ann is going to treasure!  Read more about it on her blog, Film and Thread in her two posts here and here.

Wow, that's an amazing quilt! I would love to have it on my bed to pore over the details with my little girl. Great job!!

Pictures don't begin to do justice to the fantastic blocks that my bee partners did. They put so much thought into them and it is a quilt that I treasure a lot. That was sweet of Zonnah to let you know about it. She made the perfect maze block at the top center of the quilt.

Wow, the trapunto is just startling. Lovely.

And Zonnah did an amazing job photographing the quilt. Gorgeous!

@Meghan It is amazing and I wish I could say I took the pictures but Anne is the photographer :)

that quilt is AMAZING! i've been watching those blocks come in to the quilting bee blocks group--and drooling. Anne, the idea for your blocks was fantastic inspiration. thank you for sharing the finished quilt here.

Love that quilt and the idea behind it.
Think I'll start work on one of a trip that we took when I was a teenager. What fun, plus I can search for some fabrics to do it with - you the kind - for each state and it's places of interest.
