Many thanks to my photographer friend Rendy and her two little girls for the photograph above. We battled a windy day, having to pee and cold appendages to photograph this quilt. Shattered is my first recreation from the book.
The rest of the crappy photos are mine.
Shattered, I didn’t rename it.
A) It’s just a good name
B) The design remained the same to the block size, just the colors, fabrics, and placement/size of the inserts changed.
I certainly have many hours of design already booked in my head with the ‘slice and insert’ technique. I’m hoping the book creates that same infectious creative affliction in you.
My local long-arm friend, the lovely and talented Krista Withers quilted this version up for me. She glanced at how Angela Walter’s had designed the quilting for it in the book, thought it perfect and took her own path with the slices as guidance. She said it was pretty fun.
I purchased some Anna Maria Horner velveteen sight unseen from my friend Cathy for the backing. Krista said it was dreamy to quilt.
Jacquie and I were thinking it would be fun to create a space to share quilts and projects inspired by or designed from the book, so we’ve created a Quilting Modern Flickr group.
Please join up if you’d like to add. We’d L-O-V-E to see what you’re making!
