Get a Life!

Get a Life, by Vickie Clark, 2009. Photo by India Brantley.

Get a Life! was the featured quilt in the September 6, 2009 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt© newsletter. It was created by Vickie Clark. This quilt was recently featured in the Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Show where it was voted “Best of Show” by the viewers.

Get a Life! is a kaleidoscope quilt. A kaleidoscope quilt results in a unique symmetrical design. They have been made popular by quilter Paula Nadelstern, who has turned them into an art form.

However, it is not the quilting that stopped people in their tracks. It is the exquisite beading that Vickie added to the quilt after it was quilted. This quilt has over 10,000 beads in the border alone!

 

Vickie says it took her four years to finish this 58 x 72 inch quilt. If you haven’t guessed already, that’s where the quilt gets its name!
