About Me

My photo
I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

A Little Experimentation

A trip to the library allowed me to check out the book Quilting Modern by Jacquie Gering and Katie Pederson.

I enjoy the work that both of these talented women produce, and I'm a fan of the whole modern movement.  

While I have many projects on the wall (and the floor, and in bins and drawers) I wanted to play around with something different without making a huge commitment to a full size project.
So I got out my trusty black and white fabrics and decided to try out the slice and insert technique.  It's not a technique that is totally new to me, but the book inspired me to Just Do It and so I did.

 I used 5" squares of white and 1" strips of the black…..
 And my quilting lines are very close…about 1/8" apart.

 From the backside you can see that I quilted some of the black strips ……and didn't quilt others.
I like the way the un-quilted areas stand out.  I think it has a lot of possibilities.
I'm going to get this bound when I find the right fabric…I'm sure a hunt through the stash will turn something up.

I have another new project to share…it's not that new to me but it will be new to you.
However…I have a little work to do on other things before I will be able to share.

Stay Crafty!
