I’ve always loved quilts.
When I started quilting my goal was to make one of every block there was!
I had NO idea there were so many, but at the time there was so little information that I thought I could do it.
I also had no idea we could design our own blocks.
Along the way my interest in quilting took many different directions and paths leading to where I currently am.
Without those paths I could not be where I am today.
I am going to share some of my somewhat recent work with you so you can see where I am along that path today.
FAST FORWARD TO 2013-2014………………..
You’ve seen this one recently and it was the first time I’ve made blocks with freeform curved piecing.
I was never going to dye my own fabric…I thought it took too much time and I could buy it from others and save my valuable time for creating.
There is no way anyone else could have dyed this piece I recently dyed!
I know I am much more comfortable with my own original designs.
I love designs that don’t repeat in a regular format and are asymmetrical and somewhat intuitive.
This doesn’t mean these are the only types of designs I create, but they are those I am generally most satisfied with.
I also have learned not to rush a piece to complete it. I know that like fine wine, some take a long time….even years and that’s OK with me.
Where do I go from here?
Wherever the path leads me!
