Fourpatch 2



Fourpatch #2
Hand dyed cottons, fused, machine quilted. 14 3/4 x 16 1/4" $200
Email me.

As you can see, I am using the idea of the fourpatch loosely. I figure it is a square divided in fourths or four squares arranged in different ways. Something about the negative space is crossed and that makes a nice line, so I am getting some of that into the work too. It's exciting for me to break into the 'special fabrics' I have been saving for so long.

A comment was left questioning how I did the finish on the previous quilt, and since I didn't take pictures, I promised I would show the process on this piece.
The entire top is made from fused fabric, and I purposely cut the batting and backing fabrics smaller than the top, so I could fold over and fuse the edge. I also had it in mind to stitch off the edge and that is show here too.
The corners of the quilted top are notched to avoid bulk when the edges are turned.
The fabric is gently guided over the batt and backing fabric and pressed down with a hot iron. No binding required! Yay!!
