FANE (Fiber Artists of the Northeast), a group of which I am a member will be putting on our third show this spring in the Mahopac Library. As in previous shows, our works will be mounted on white artist canvases, this time 18" square and our works have to be 12" square, thus the title. For our previous shows we have published books and will again this year, but Jane Davila, our fearless leader, decided that it would be fun if we also had tutorials in the book to explain a technique in our quilt.
I chose to do Skinny Wiggly piecing, a favorite of mine and this is my quilt, Summer Storm, which uses some of my snow dyed fabric, commercial batiks and Dupioni silk. More about the tutorial in another post someday. And it really is perfectly square, just bad photography. Sorry!
I thought that the quilt needed a little something extra and decided to do some beading. Here's a detail of one section, that is the vertical strip on the left side of the quilt, in which I did spaced beading, using beads of different sizes and shapes.
