I’ve been a bit busy with classes and quilt shows recently and have a number of projects on the go but none at the right stage to share with you here yet.
But I did manage to finish the Improv Mini that I started in Lu Summer’s Class at Fat Quarterly Retreat this summer. I finished the top in the class, using Kona solids and assorted scraps.
Yes, I know, that’s a lot of hand quilting. It almost looks like it’s been done by a crazy person…
…Oh wait a minute, it has been done by a crazy person – me!! Do you think compulsive hand quilting is a recognised condition? Maybe I should be getting some help…
Here’s the back. I like to make bigger front stitches than back stitches (I’m a rebel!). It makes for a dimpled texture on the back which I like.
I used Kona Charcoal for the binding and the finished size is 15 inches squared.
I’ve got this hanging in the craft studio now – scaring all my students!
