Monday, we had a meeting of people interested in forming a non-traditional quilt group. I should have taken pictures - Nancy brought an interesting quilt ala Gwen Marston incorporating black and whites with bright prints. Mary brought a batik wall hanging in earthtones. Both are in the process of quilting with pearl cotton. I showed them my little strip pieced project (fully intending to launch into more strip pieced blocks after everyone went home). We hope that we can get a few more people to join us (Mondays, 1 PM). There is a large and active modern quilt guild group operating in the Chapel Hill area.
When my guests went home, I did an internet search on the general topic of non-traditional quilts and up popped a link to a quilter named Kristin Miller (Canada). I was interested in what she had to say and THEN, in her gallery, I found a number of quilts with spirals! I printed a picture of one of them, not to copy but to study. When normal people were going to bed, I started my first spiral.
