Funny thing - I came home from the very exciting and inspirational QuiltCon, that is the Modern Quilting Guild Conference, which is all about improvisational quilt design - and when I got back to my lovely studio, what did I pick up to work on but my several in progress English Paper Piecing projects. Go figure.
I am still in love with improvisational quilting, and I know that I will do lots more of it, but somehow the precision of EPP really appeals to me right now. And I think that I actually use EPP in an improvisational manner, so there you go :-)
|This collection of rosettes made from 1/2 inch hexagons is mostly left over from my "Garden Anticipation" collection of medallion wall quilts. I am just putting them together randomly with no plan in mind. Now THAT is improvisation!|
|This part of the Grandmother's Garden quilt that I am making for Katie. The top is almost finished. I worked on it today. Just a few more rosettes and pathways to add, then some kind of border to make it larger.|
|These are octagons. They are mostly made from the interesting fabric samples that I ordered from Fingerprint. The solid green is stamped by me. I am appliquéing them to this lovely natural linen for a set of placemats for myself.|
