Chris tells us how she plans to start her Challenge 1 quilt: “I usually begin by placing the block in EQ both in a horizontal setting and on point. From there, I just start playing with the center part of the quilt looking for interesting intersections and designs that appear when I change the colors, delete or add lines. Then I move on to the borders. At that point, I may go back and change the center depending on what borders I come up with. I love batik fabrics, so will probably start with those first.”
“I used a modified Storm at Sea Block as one of the blocks in the Taos quilt. I like to choose a traditional block and then ‘rework’ it by either adding lines or deleting lines to create a new block.”
Chris shared some photos of her quilting ‘helpers’ with us:
Along with Jas, Yoda, and Simon, Chris’ other dog Lucy is usually found laying over her feet as she sews. Good luck on Challenge 1, Chris!
