New Quilts

I am starting to make quilts that are entirely improvised from the beginning to end with no specific design in mind. The quilt develops as I cut and sew.

I am also making quilts in the Kawandi style, meaning each scrap is sewn onto the batting and back from the outside edge in, working from right to left in a circular fashion. The straight stitch pattern holds the scraps in place as you go so by the time you are in the middle, the quilt is almost complete. Four “flowers” need to be added to the corners at the end. These are small squares folded in four and sewn just at the centre to the tip of each corner. This photo shows the process partway along.
