Stupendous Stitching: Adventures in Surface Design »
Type of item: Functional
Style: Hipster, Casual, Mod
White on White patterned cotton fabric, Pellon interfacing, Sulky Rayon thread
What was your inspiration?
The colors and esthetics of the "Modern Quilt" Movement.
What are you most proud of?
I like the way the design came out. I can just imagine each block being slightly different since I never plan my work so I think the quilt will have a lot of movement. I also can't wait to machine quilt in the white spaces to ensure that the decorative machine stitching really pops off the top.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Draw some lines on paper before you start to get an idea of what you want to do. You can also draw your lines lightly with pencil and then stitch over them.
