Saturday night kick off
I have done several small fun scrappy quilts and so to warm up and get into the spirit of being liberated and playing - I did this one after we were all settled in and I was set up and ready to sew.
I want to hand quilt with perle cotton all the quilts from this time in Sisters. So I am hand basting them as I go along.
This is 11 inches by 12 inches.
The white fabric started as a fat quarter- and jumping off from a quilt in Gwen's book suggested for our class, Abstract Quilts in Solids I did my idea. I fussy cut the designs to gain the impact I wanted.
Think tone on tone = solid and it works perfectly.
A perfect warm up- just the right amount of time spent and then it was bedtime.
I am doing Tonya's Amish Abstraction class...I think this small quilt would also work for that class, don't you?
I do have something more from the book she recommended however that will serve as an inspiration too...
