Featuring Nicoletta — A Blogger’s Quilt Festival Quilter!

Posted on July 16th, by Amy in Featured Quilter. 8 comments

Hi Friends!  I’m feeling rather accomplished – I spent yesterday basting and quilting my quilt!  Of course, it was between errands and meals, and afternoon pool time.  The how question (How do you do it all!?) comes up now and then in the comments – I stay up late, and get up early!  I’ve never been one to need 8-9 hours of sleep, 6-7 is good, 5 if I’m in a pinch :)  Anyway, let me get a binding on it, wash it, and finish up the pattern and I’ll show it to you next week!  Do you have a favorite size quilt to make?  I put a poll up, to gauge your quilt commitment level – let me know!
Our featured quilter today is Nichi (Nicoletta) she’s from Italy and I love her use of color.  I hope you enjoy getting to know Nichi better and seeing her quilts -

1. When did you begin quilting?

I took my first quilting class in 2003 (after some years in collecting books and magazines) and I fell in love with it immediately…I was ready to fall in love!

2. Why do you quilt?

I have always love colors above all and quilting gives me the possibility to play with better as every other kind of crafting. I like all the quilting techniques, traditional, appliqué and improvisational that I feel as the new way of expression but that, as the modern art, can’t set aside from the perfect knowledge of the basic rules and the tradition.

3. What is your favorite quilting tip?

My favourite quilting tip is to use all the fabric I choose for a project to finish that project ( for the border or the binding or the backing) so as to have the least scraps possible.

4. What was your inspiration for your Quilt Festival quilt?

The inspiration for my Festival quilts came from the red fabrics in my stash …I would find a way to use them all together and the big hexagon pattern seemed perfect.

5. Do you sew other things?

I love the quilts, I have quilts on my bed and on my sofa and I like to stay under them… so I like to make quilts!

Thank you so much for sharing your quilts with us Nichi!  I love how far reaching this quilt/blog community is :)
Have a great weekend everyone~

  1. Beautiful quilts and love the kitties, my favorite subject.

    When I was younger and my kids were young, I did twice as much as I do now;)
