I just started watching a you tube video series called whirls and swirls. She has done a video a day for 100 days last year and is just starting another 100. Worth checking out here
Not much art quilting done because I've spent the past week patching holes and tears on an
old well loved king sized dutchmans puzzle quilt.
There was a gapping hole right in the middle so I seam ripped out a block from a corner and appliquéd that in the middle where it shows and patched the hole, then put that in the corner slot.
I thought that was it but then upon looking I started seeing a lot of this. Old fabric shreds after years of use unless the quilt is kept in a climate controlled vault somewhere but what good does that do? I believe a quilt should be used.
So not one to do a job half - assed, I ended up free motion quilting the geese in the offending blocks like this.
It took me awhile but was enjoyable " tv watching time" work.
Our crazy spring continues - on Sunday it was 70 degrees and tonight it's going to be 10 below zero!
Next week I am participating in a blog hop where you pick an artist and make a quilt inspired by that artist. Can be any art form including writers. I am doing Laurel Burch who you probablly know as a textile designer.
I'm sure you have owned at least one of her designs at some point.
Her style is uniquely her own.
