I have a few photos of my friend Jane's design wall, taken while she was working through her HouseTop quilts in a couple of my classes.
|two blocks and some colour ideas|
Jane started her striped HouseTop quilt in a class in June, and brought the work in progress to another class in November, where she started another quilt. Can't wait to see what she'll have next time I see her!
|Here it is, sewn together and with one of the borders she has designed sewn on.|
|Jane's neat set-up, and her wee Singer featherweight machine.|
Jane started out on a different fabric story with the second quilt in her series. This time she had a contemporary leaf print and worked it up with solids and black.
Working in a series is great, because
all the stuff you learn in the first quilt
gets used in the next quilts, and you build up
a language all your own.
