TQS member Ferret, whom we introduced in Meet Ferret back in 2010, has been busy creating an absolutely astounding quilt named Prometheus. This quilt is made from a single piece of fabric, no seams. The piece was died for Ferret by Heide Stoll-Weber. Ferret worked her own designs into the fabric. Prometheus contains about 16-18 cones of thread in about 10 different colors. There is no actual trapunto, Ferret used two layers of wool batting and the trapunto effect is achieved by the density of the quilting in the background. It is basically reversible as the bobbin thread matches the top thread. Ferret thinks she has anywhere from 400-600 hours of work in it.
The hard work paid off; the quilt won Judge's Choice, 1st place in Bed Quilts, 1st place in Wholecloth Quilts, the Fran Jones longarm/shortarm award and overall show champion as the UK National Quilt Championships.
Ferret is graciously sharing some photos which highlight the quilting that went into her creation. You cannot help be be inspired by her work.
