My friend Jo encouraged me to join in on this on-line challenge being run by Leah Day of 365 Days of Free-motion Quilting blog. I think the blog has now been re-named as The Free Motion Quilting Project. The challenge is to make a small quilt (9" by 12") using a minimum of 5 of Leah's designs from the project, using the theme "Transformation".
I chose to use Radio Static, Chain of Pearls, Matrix Flow, Bed of Roses and Bubble Wand. Let me tell you I found it quite a challenge to get that many different designs into such a small space and still have them look recognizable.
I decided to combine the quilting I wanted to use with the Darned Quilts technique I learned in Dena Crain's class at Wellington Symposium.
These are the fabrics I chose:
In the first from the bottom up I have used Bubble Wand, a square meander, Matrix Flow, a mini Greek key and Radio Static
Bed of Roses, Chain of Pearls and some straight lines:
Matrix at the top:
Here are some closeups of the front:
This section has Chain of Pearls, Bed of Roses and Radio Static
It is called "Changes"
