I really like how this quilt came together. The blocks came in one donation and I really liked the way they looked together and wanted them to be in the one quilt. The only problem was that there was not enough blocks and fabrics to make a lap sized quilt. This is where a design wall or graph paper come in handy.
For this quilt I worked out where I wanted each piece to go and then ‘filled’ in the rest with negative space. I don’t know if you have ever done anything like that, but for me this was a first. Breaking up the quilt into sections and then filling in the space and then piecing it together. It was a great experience that really made me realise that I love ‘modern’ quilting. I still love traditional quilting – I am half way through The Farmer’s Wife quilt and have the book, templates and cd for Dear Jane, but something about more modern quilting just sits really well with me.
