I am always thrilled when I finish a quilt. I am even more thrilled when I am pleased with it.
Serenity is my 386th finished quilt.
This is what it looked like before I trimmed the edges. I had planned on finishing it with a curved irregular edge, but as I was working on it I realized it wanted to be squared off.
I used shibori fabrics I had dyed. They were actually left from previous quilts I created.
The piecing is freeform curved piecing, a technique I gave a demonstration on to our Art Quilt group recently.
It is such an easy and freeing way to work.
Generally I let the quilting mimic the pattern in the shibori fabrics.
This quilt told me it wanted me to emphasize the free form curve piecing.
I may start with a general idea when I create something, but I make many changes and decisions along the way.
I think this allows me to create better art.
