100 Days – Week of Prints – Featured Quilt 4

A white frame and charcoal negative space highlight the patchwork-pieced print fabrics in Heather Bostic’s Interstate Love Song quilt.

Here’s what Heather had to say about her quilt:

“I wanted to create an edgy/ urban quilt expressing my admiration for my husband.  It only made sense to use Anna Maria Horner’s Innocent Crush fabric line with my masculine chevron design, keeping romance without the frills.  Add to that the fact that my Long Arm quilter, Angela Walters, then quilted into the quilt the lyrics to Stone Temple Pilots Interstate Love Song (our song)… and I think you get perfect image of two young kids falling in love in Portland, OR.

 My method (or madness if you prefer) is to always bring a masculine feel to all my designs, regardless of the fabrics being used.  This was no exception.  I pulled mostly cool tones with a pop of warm and then surrounded them in a stark, dark charcoal contrasting color to achieve my overall edgy, but still romantic look to the quilt.”

Heather lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband and two sons. Read more about her many sewing and quilting projects on her blog (music with link).
