I Created my Own Free-Form Quilt

This afternoon I put the facing on the quilt that I made in Rayna Gillman's workshop.  I am pleased with the results.  I see a lot more strips and strings in my future.


I'd be sewing more strips together right now if I didn't have a quilt shop to run.  There is a new beginning quilting class on the horizon and a new Cotton Fields pattern in the works.  I can show you the fabrics that I have chosen for my sample:
A Timeless Treasures collection called "Eclipse" provided the inspiration, but in the end, only two pieces made it into the mix.  

Another bit of "homework" to do before I play with my scraps is putting the binding on a lap quilt that came back from the machine quilter yesterday.  When that is done, I'll have more show-and-tell.

Love the free-form piece. Can't wait to see the finished piece in person.

I love this! Great colors with the pops of black and white and orange-red. It turned out great!
