A new quilt
This is the start of my newest quilt, that is now quilted, faced, and just waiting for a sleeve and label.
It started with strips of fabric, some skinny and some very wide, that were sewn into squares that were about 40" on each side
I don't have pictures of the squares at that point, but the next step was to stack and slice through the squares, and then shuffle and reassemble all the pieces.
The squares were then stacked and the slice - shuffle - and reassemble process was repeated.
With four sewn-together squares on the design wall, it was fun to rotate them and study the design possibilities.
Here's the final composition after being quilted on the long-arm machine.
"Whirlpool" is 70" high X 73" wide.
