I've started organizing the quilts I would like to bring to the trunk show that I'll be doing at the Schweinfurth Museum on the 30th. This has involved finishing the quilting on some of the tops and doing the bindings/facings.
In some cases, I thought it might be interesting to look at the origins of a quilt. For instance, this black and white piece (17" x 24") was created improvisationally from cut up shapes (squares, rectangles, triangles).
And this quilt (40 x 40) was made by loosely following the pattern of the black and white piece, while skewing some of the shapes.
I quilted it on my long-arm machine.
