First quilt


True to my interest in creating beautiful AND practical things, when I started quilting, I didn’t want to dink around with a practice project. So, I made a king-sized quilt for our bed. It’s my own design, incorporating the traditional log cabin block motif in a non-traditional way. I used a lot of negative space with a gorgeous shade of blue woven cotton, so I could practice various free motion quilting patterns.

I’m noticing similarities between quilt piecing and doing mosaic with hard tesserae—it’s  important to think about color, size, print versus solid, when placing the soft tesserae we know as fabric.
