Making Progress

I worked on this on and off all day yesterday and it's not finished.  As you can see I decided to go with the one great print and I think that was the right decision. I started with a piece that was about 22" x 20" and is it shrinking down a bit.  I plan to do a lot more red inserts, ala Kathy Loomis, who has done of whole series of these fine line piecing quilts that she calls "fault lines" or "crazed". Hers are huge and I don't know how she does it because even doing this little piece is very tedious.  But then I love to piece and often choose the tedious.   



The widest of the pieced inserts are 1/4"wide and others are 1/8".  I'm striving to keep them narrower.  I'll work on it some more tomorrow and will post the finished results.

You are the expert at the tiny details and narrow piecing. Very striking. !

Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow.

What a great way to emulate Kathy's work--using one geometric print slashed and rejoined! This is exciting, and excellent practice for those tiny seams.
