Electric Breeze

“Electric Breeze”

Approximately 20 wide x 20 tall

$125

My friend, Elizabeth, runs a beautiful quilt shop (it’s called Modern Makers) within a vintage shop in the West Bottoms of Kansas City.  When I was down visiting her shop I decided to wander through the rest of the shop.

Electric Breeze - Overall

If you’ve never visited an antique or vintage shop, you should.  They’re loaded with lots of cool things.

One of the really cool things I found there was a vintage electric fan.

I loved the lines of it & the industrial vibe it gave off.

I turned it into a quilt.

Electric Breeze - Back

Don’t you just love the way the grey thread on the white backing of these quilts looks like a drawing?

All of the quilts I make to sell that I think might be used as wall hangings come with two pockets in the upper corners are the backside.  This is to make it super easy to hang the quilt.  All it needs is a dowel or thing board cut to the width of the quilt (minus the binding) and inserted into the pockets.  I like to use a very thin board and rested on two t-pins poked into the wall to hang quilts in my house.

If you’re interested in purchasing this quilt or any of my other work, visit my etsy shop to see my current selection.  This quilt is for sale here.
