. . . where fiber art meets quilting

I haven’t abandoned my blog, but I have been traveling a lot, and when I was at home between trips, I was working [frantically] on quilts to meet deadlines. When time is at a premium, it’s so much quicker and easier to post on Instagram and Facebook than writing a blog post. If you follow me on IG or FB, you may have already seen this information. For those of you who only read my blog, here’s a recap of what I’ve been up to since February 16th.

Why Quilts Matter: History, Art & Politics - Notes on The Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival 2012

Kenny, my husband was there with me. It is astonishing to be at this Festival because it is held in the Tokyo Dome where baseball and rock concerts and other events are staged. It seats more then 55,000 people, so to see the long lines of Japanese women waiting to buy tickets and get into the show was not the norm there. This is the 11th year for the Festival. I have been invited 5 times to curate an exhibition of antique quilts there, all on different themes. This year the earthquake had a big impact on the show.

British English[edit] Working with Scraps. Can you believe this year is almost coming to a close?!

Working with Scraps

It was a pretty good year for me and I am anticipating even more quilty fun in the coming year! I don't know about you, but I always seem to spend the month of December reflecting on the previous year and identifying things I wish to accomplish in the future. Usually by New Years, I have a pretty good idea of what I hope to accomplish. ReannaLily Designs Sewing and Pattern Company. I really like the math behind visual illusion quilts.

I like that quilts look 3D or “hard to figure out”. For that reason, I really enjoy the Ricky Tims’ Convergence quilts. I bought the book made a couple squares/blocks in 2009, which, evidently I made into a bag. Well, since then, I’ve seen a few convergence quilts made with triangles. Check out some of the cool ones by Caryl Bryer Fallert. I set forth to finally give it a try. How to make an Interleave quilt. My Interleave quilts are pieced using a quilt-as-you-go technique in which thin strips of fabric are sewn to batting and backing.

How to make an Interleave quilt

The interleave design results from cutting these strips from two panels of fabric and piecing alternate strips from each panel. In my quilts, some of the panels are pieced and some are photos printed on fabric. For added interest, I often shift my strips in a wave pattern. The result of this process is a complex-looking quilt that can be pieced quickly from thin strips sewn in straight lines. How to Identify Patchwork Designs. It's important to learn how to identify patchwork quilt blocks by the gridwork that makes up their layouts. Why? Because understanding the grids makes it easy to change the size of a quilt block and to recognize which quilt blocks work together best.

How Patchwork Quilt Blocks Are Categorized We often name patchwork quilt blocks by the gridded arrangement of their patches and refer to them with terms such as four-patch, nine-patch, and five-patch. Those terms reveal how a block's grids are arranged.
