It’s June So Time To Share Some June Quilts

After dyeing a group of fabrics I decided that rather than let them sit on a shelf I would use them right away to create quilts.
I pieced 20 unique quilts from those fabrics.
June Quilt 10

June Quilt 9

June Quilt 12

June Quilt 16

June Quilt 15

These are 5 of the 20 quilts I made in just one month.
It takes studying such a diverse group of fabrics I had dyed to come up with ideas to use them.  I often had several of them in progress on my design wall to see what they were telling me they wanted to be. Once I started the ideas flowed. I was never afraid to just start cutting these fabrics and see the work take shape. It was a great feeling to create 20 pieces in 30 days.
It took me about a year to quilt and finish them for a solo show of my work.

WOW! For a minute, I thought you were talking about June 2018! It's only June 3rd. I knew you were 'good' but didn't know you were a magician!

Beautiful work! I especially like June quilt 12 with those swooping curves.
