Some quilters like to cut fabric. I have a friend who does. It gives her satisfaction. (To which I say, huh.) I’m not like that. For someone who loves quilting, it’s a bit amazing how many parts I find a little tedious (sometimes a lot tedious). So, I’m not big on cutting. One of the things I love about all my miniatures? Not so much on the slice and dice! But here is the fabric for Jeff’s quilt, all cut up:
Pretty fabrics in strips of color: black, brown, burgundy, pink, and cream. Quite lovely, really. The whole quilt is built off of 2 1/2” strips. It promises to be easy to assemble, so we’ll see.
This is very much a “not me” kind of quilt. With my bigger quilt projects, I tend towards heavily scrappy quilts with a whole lot of different fabrics and, more often than not, a whole lot of shades and colors as well. Even my minis tend toward that style for the most part. So a quilt like this? Definitely outside my box. Which, actually, I rather enjoy.
How about you? Do you enjoy lots of scrappy or something more restrained and controlled such as this?
