Bell Tower

May 2005
76 x 76

This quilt was inspired by the tile floor in the bell tower of Grace Episcopal Church, Anniston, Alabama. Despite its impression of a beautiful patchwork form, the design presented many challenges to present in cloth. The on point tiles had to be as small as possible to keep the overall size of the quilt manageable, but the intricacy of them mandated their size and led to changes in the outer edges of the quilt. Also, although the majority the quilt is on point, the four corners are not. The trapunto design used to fill these corners was drafted after studying the square celtic crosses presented throughout Grace Church.
