Rhapsody in orange?
This is not a Ricky Tims quilt. It does look like one, which makes sense because it was made in one of his classes, the "Rhapsody" class, which is also what his new book is about. I doubt that this is entirely a coincidence. (I took a different class of his - it was called "Caveman-Style Quilting" or something to that effect - a few years back. If you ever get the chance to take one of his classes, go. Not only is he a good quilter, and a good teacher, he's just a hoot to be around.) The Rhapsody book was all over the place at quilt festival - I guess it's newly released. I flipped through it, but applique is not really my thing so I can't say I looked terribly closely. I'm not planning on making one, after all. But they're very pretty quilts, anyway.
"Regalia" (above) made by Susan Webster of Minnesota; entered in the judged show (category: Innovative Applique, Large) at IQF 2007.
