NEW: One of a Kind Quilts
Today, Vacilando is launching four brand new one of a kind quilts in the shop. These quilts are extra special - each one is completely unique and will never be made again. The process wasn’t limited by cost, time, or materials - I went all out and created the coziest useable art for your home.
These four pieces are a culmination of a year’s worth of recovering from burnout, rediscovering joy in my work, gathering inspiration, conceptualizing, designing, pushing outside of my comfort zone, trying new techniques, and of course, quilting. With this small collection of quilts, I gave myself the freedom to create “just because” and experimented with the idea of Vacilando quilts as art.
Each quilt started out as a design I wanted to make "just because" but, in true Vacilando fashion, they slowly took on meaning and began to relate to one another to create this cohesive theme of contrast and home.
Night Ride uses high contrast and low contrast elements with the sentiment of longing for home and freedom simultaneously. Going Back incorporates neutrals with bold color to signify that familiar/unfamiliar feeling of returning to a place you once lived. Port is organized chaos and was inspired by an unassumingly beautiful place I would never have expected to find a sense of longing for. Tamalpais is made up of large fields of colorful tones to show the many sides of a single landscape that I used to call home.
These four quilts are one of a kind, so there’s only one like it in the world and it’ll never be replicated. It’s an original work of art that, with proper care, will last through generations. Because why limit the art you bring into your home to just the walls, when you could turn your entire bed into a work of art?
