I did a little experiment at a retreat doing some improv curved piecing. I was using scraps from a fellow retreater they were cast off from a judy niemeyer quilt so odd shaped triangles mostly. I made four main clusters of curved pieces then added the putty fabcic to pull the pieces together Once they were sewn together the face emerged. A pleasant surprise. I then quilted it with a contrasting 40 weight thread. This piece was juried into the Canadian NJS that is in Ottawa this week. I did not win a ribbon but I have my quilt hanging with some very impressive quilts. I do not do this kind of quilts and stretched myself artistically to make it. I am pleased with the overall project. This piece is 20" x 20"
Do you stitch your initials or some type of symbol on your customers quilts when completing a heirloom free-motion or free-motion edge to edge quilt? All artist sign their work but in this case we are collaborating with a other artist (the quilt top artist) when working on their pieced tops. Currently if I'm quilting a customers quilt using my own quilt designs, I stitch a few initials in the corner. If I'm quilting a customers quilt using a design board or pantograph, I'm conflicted on what to do. Thanks and I look forward to having this discussion.
