When the Quilt Starts Talking to You.....

 At a certain point, I find the quilt starts taking on a life of its own...
Not only that, it starts talking to me. 
Step by step it starts to unfold....... 
Stitch by stitch it starts to come alive.....

Quilt As You Go (QAYG) allows me to create large while working small. Quilting these angles is a easy when working in small sections.

I like getting complex designs with simple techniques

  2. The darn things DO talk to me, too. I start out with a certain quilt in mind, and end up with something completely different. The quilt will develop and move in a new direction as it is constructed. You have to let the quilt go along the new path it wants to take. Sounds crazy, I know :^) but it's true. Love the linear quilting and the bold colors of your quilt. The addition of the black makes it perfect.

    1. Ditto what she said!!! I use to "fight" to make it behave and do what I wanted it to do, but I learned to "listen" to it and let it take me in the direction it wanted to go. That's not always easy to do :)

      Love these angles!!!
