My Fall Tour, 2013

Off to the Lake Norman Quilters Guild in Mooresville, NC when around the corner was this beautiful cotton field in bloom. This translates to more fabric and quilts, yes, yes.

The lesson was my Strip Picture Piecing for landscapes. The equilateral Grid Grip works perfectly here for one small mountain scene, but multiples could be cut from one template with layers underneath. The tip of the day: once the pattern is drawn and coded, use your I phone or I pad to capture the design before cutting apart and pressing onto fabric. Really works well here.

 Nothing better than to finish in class. Now on to borders, setting and quilting...whatever!
Of course, the other option is for those interrupted rectangles that come together for curves.
