Here’s another reader who tried the April quilt date of piecing very thin lines – and even had a second date. Linda Laird tried the technique on two challenge pieces.
The second was made for the San Diego Quilt Show. Linda explains, “The theme is ‘Calm,’ and the blue-green batik in the horizontal stripes is the challenge fabric. I cut these strips on the bias to see how much curve I could get before the background fabric bubbled. I also pieced the background fabric from torn length-wise strips, and then ‘pierced’ thru it with the straight cross-grain strips.”
Good work, Linda! I love seeing how different people take the same basic concept and go in different directions. Thanks for sharing.
