This is the first piece I completed. I just can’t learn the technique presented, this month being improv piecing, without finishing up with something complete.
So, here I did some random quilting and stretched it over a frame. (The frame was a purchase from the Good Will store, since I like to up-cycle. This one came with an interesting painted canvas, which will work into something else, but that is another post.)
As mentioned in earlier posts about this challenge, once you get the idea, it becomes addicting. That means I did not stop here!
I kept stitching these fabric selections together until I ended up with more pieces. My favorite piece of all is the one that is mostly white…I think it follows the technique the best.
The two little ones, all pieces were stretched over canvas, were cut up from one of the bigger pieces.
Above are little collages of all 4 of them together. Which ones do you like? Quilted or not?
It is fun that they could be displayed on a wall, easels, flat, turned any direction. I think I am pretty happy with the result. I could, however, look into better ways to handle the stretching over canvas or frames…especially the corners!
On to March soon! Remember, Mighty Lucky Quilting Club is only $5 per month and I have already learned two new techniques!
