|My first Sewn, Slashed and Sewn quilt. I don't know what else to call it. I sew various size strips together, cut them into long triangles and sew them together again. Then I quilt the heck out of the piece. Below is a closeup.|
The quilt that is on my blog header, turned sideways, "Sun Kissed San Bernardino Mountains" was in the "Slice of Southern California" challenge for Quilts on the Wall. I sewed, slashed and fused this one also. I believe it is 16" x 42"
This quilt "Firefall" was in the journal quilts at IQF Houston in 2007. This was the year that Kerry had us do a 17" by 22" quilt and just submit one.
"Florabundant" was in the "In Full Bloom IV" IQA Houston exhibit 2007. 18" x 25"
In the close-up you can see the quilting. I also used the bobbin work with Pearl cotton to do the roses. I explained how on one of my other pieces under Rusted Fabric Quilts.
"It's So Fragile" I sewed, slashed and then fused the long triangle instead of sewing them together. It was a bit faster, but also gave a different look. I wanted the quilt to look like colored glass shattering.
This was part of "The Indelible Spirit" exhibit in 2005. 25" x 25"

"Dairy Air" was part of the "Four Elements Air" exhibit by jo griffith.
Also, I used the bobbin work with Pearl cotton. 23" x 27"
If I were a house, I'd be a sea castle. This one is a small quilt and is presently showcased in one of my bathrooms. "Sea Castle" is 9" x 17"
