Joke Lady asked:
This is a finished project of mine that was pattern-free, spontaneous and easily embellished. The process is called double cutting, or cutting two identical fabric rectangles s at the same time with free-hand vertical cuts. By separating the layers and reassembling them, you create two new blocks. I added a piece of ribbon along the seam in each block, after they were assembled but before they were sewn together. I used a decorative stitch to accent the ribbons that add a shimmering effect. Each block was quilted with free-motion quilting. This was actually fun to make and satisfied my need for self-expression with laboring over it for months.
