I have made a small series of Improv quilts. Yes, they are quilted but I still need to do the facings and hanging sleeves. I think I am quite slow at this process. Oh, and I still need to make the quilt labels. This fellow is titled, “I love you just as you are”. Thanks Colin.
When you find yourself naming a quilt something, something, “Infinity” you might take that as a clue. I am so nearly finished with a seriously CRAZY scrap quilt that I used to refer to as “micro scrap piecing”, but find that I can’t seem to use the term, “micro” to describe this so much larger than imagined or planned quilt. When you work with scraps, and are using narrow pieces, the seam allowances might be wider than what is visible. I started with a narrow seam allowance because I wanted to make the most of what I had to use. I eventually changed to standard seam allowances for the integrity of the piece – ie I need the seams to be strong and safe from fraying. So my piecework loses a 1/4 inch on both sides as I add new pieces. If I add a 1 inch strip every time that would only be loss of 1/2 inch. But I tend to add narrower pieces.
I am accustomed to working with small pieces. So much so, it is difficult for me to cut big pieces with the idea of making them small. This work is “Improv in Yellow and Black”. (Notice I did get some tiny pieces in along the edge.)
