This is a detail of another one of my new art quilts. It’s just the top so far, but I’m having fun with this process. I like the painterly quality of using solids and the element of surprise in the improvisational piecing. These pieces seem to need hand quilting, so I’m using perle cotton to quilt circles and lines in the pieced squares. This is the largest one of these I’ve put together so far–about 30″ high x 18″ wide. I have another small square piece on the design wall, then I think I’m going to experiment with making one using larger pieces. Each piece seems to lead to another and another. What fun!
