ProjectQUILTING 8.4: Love is Love

When I read the theme for week 4 of ProjectQUILTING, I knew I had to participate. I have had an idea to make some quilted art featuring the outlinr of Indiana using rainbow colors. I had plenty of brightly colored scraps, and did the whole project in anout 3 hours broken up into increments when my kids were asleep!

The quilt is approx. 11"x17".

There is a fine line between "perfectly imperfect" and "downright sloppy," but I am going to go with the former on this, as I am making an effort to be kind to myself. In grad school, a professor told me, "done is better than perfect," and so I'm sticking with that!

The piece features some scraps of treasured Tula Pink and Lily Asbury. If you look closely, you will see "love is love" free motion quilted using rainbow colored varigated Aurifil thread. It is a tribute to all LGBTQIA Hoosiers. It was designed, pieced, and quilted in Bloomington, Indiana.


  1. LOVE this!!!! So creative & says so much...❤

  2. I love that you quilted with "love is love" - and using the rainbow thread is genius. Beautiful. Indiana has never looked so good. <3
