12×12 JanuaryJanuary 17, 2007
I was finally able to get some pictures of my 12×12 project for January. The piecing is based on the Broken Dishes pattern. The center section shows Broken Dishes in its traditional form while around the edges I varied the pattern to create some interesting effects. The fabrics are all hand dyed and I was thinking of winter when I chose the colors.
For the quilting I used a few different traditional patterns; parallel lines in the framework around the center, Triangle Elbow in the triangles around the edge and feathers in the light blue area. This is the first time I have done feathers on anything other than a practice piece. The redeeming factor here is that it is so small that you can’t see whether they are any good or not!! 🙂
Hey, how did that Herringbone Stitch get in there? I tell you, I have to watch what I look at on the internet because I never know when it will show up in my work!!
