PATTERN DETAILS

I signed up for Ann Petersen's class "Playing with Curves" and loved it. Inspired by her lesson on New York Beauty, I drafted a 5 point version of the classic block and off set them around a center block. I incorporated some of my collection of silk tie fabric for the spikes. I really enjoy following Leah Day's blog and chose my quilting designs from her website. Leah is also a teacher here at Craftsy. In the end, I thought the whole piece looked like something from the 30's or 40's Art Deco movement and so chose the name Deco Gears. This design is the result of ideas and instruction from great quilt teachers and so it's my gift back to the community here at Craftsy. Enjoy!

I am Barb Westfall, a quilt artist from Canada. Much of my art is inspired by the wide open landscape all around me and by great works of art hanging in galleries around the world. I love to experiment with fibers, fabrics, and techniques and try to challenge myself to do something new in each piece I create. The possibilities are endless and inspiration is everywhere! I display many of my pieces mounted on stretcher frames, a simple process I explain in my collection of patterns from The Quilted Canvas. You'll always find something a little different in my patterns but I believe creativity should be fun so I keep the projects simple and flexible ... designed to bring out the quilt artist in YOU, too!
