My Quilt “I Love Strong Coffee” Finds a New Home

 

I Love Strong Coffee, 70×70 inch lap quilt by O.V. Brantley, 2012. SOLD!

Sometimes I am really sad to see a quilt go. I love all of my quilts, but I do have my favorites.  I Love Strong Coffee is a favorite quilt.

Alas, I sold it and it is gone to its new home. It was one of my favorites because I love neutrals, and I loved the simple message. I even loved the back of the quilt — hearts in neutral colors.

I know it is gone to a good home. Hopefully the new owner loves strong coffee too. #december

Bazaarly Big and Beautiful #4

Bazaarly Big and Beautiful #4 lap quilt by O.V. Brantley, 2017. For sale at ovbrantleyquilts.com

In preparation for my 9-day craft tour of Bali, I saw many pictures of colorful batik markets. The batik markets of Bali inspired this series of quilts. I wanted to randomly mix different prints to get a bazaar effect. Since I was experimenting and many of the fabrics had a large scale, I decided to make the blocks big. That’s how this series of quilts got its name.

Bazaarly Big and Beautiful #4 is a lap quilt that measures approximately 52×70 inches. It is comprised of 12 random 18 inch blocks in a mix of African and domestic prints. It is pieced on my machine and quilted on a long arm.

My Quilt “Be You” Finds a New Home

Be You, 36×36 inch art quilt by O.V. Brantley, 2014.

I enjoy gifting quilts, especially at Christmas. This year I gifted a quilt to each member of my management team at the DeKalb County Law Department.

My deputy Viviane Ernstes is the new owner of Be You.  I chose this quilt for her because she will be my successor. No matter how much you liked the old boss, I believe it is important for the new boss to put their own imprint on an organization. Although Viviane and I agreed on most things, I hope she will show up every day and just be Viviane.

Viviane has already told me that she loves the quilt, so I know it is gone to a good home. #joyandgratitude #dekalblaw #alifeofsimpleabundance #december
