2 ABOUT ACCIDENTAL QUILTER

Quilt 5 - 2014  'Waves, Tides, and Currents'

 

For my fifth quilt I wanted to build on the idea  of using turned edge fused patches to create perfect pattern matching and once I saw a fabric based on the eddies and flows of moving water I knew that I wanted to use it.

 

With hindsight I fear that the contrast between the six colours in the collection was perhaps not as stark as I needed it to be and this led to a less successful result than I had hoped for but the whole exercise taught me a great deal and I am sure I will return to this technique in the future.

 

At least I got the satisfaction of seeing people refuse to believe that I had been able to match the  pattern so well as I changed from colour to colour. They were sure that I must have in some way printed the pattern onto plain fabric after sewing the different patches together !
