What I'm working on now

I love deconstructing quilts and then putting them back together.  For this one, as usual I started with drawings from my sketchbooks.  I drew them onto muslin and quilted following the pencil lines.  For one quilt I free-motion quilted all around the image, then went back into it with paint sticks.  For another quilt I left the lines of the drawing very simply quilted.  I then cut up the two quilts, one in 2" strips, one in 3" strips, then proceeded to re-construct one quilt.  This is the result so far.  I will still go back and put backing and more batting, and do some more quilting, most likely just around the stripes.  


  1. You are bolder than me to take the scissors to a finished quilt!! I love the result!

  2. i have a few I plan on cutting up and redoing....i like what you have done and....congratulations on your blog.
