My patchwork quilt blocks are coming along nicely. By applying sound sewing habits from years of working in the Los Angeles based “rag trade,” I have successfully combined both industrial & domestic fabric selection/sewing techniques into a rapidly forming rather fanciful potentially satisfying quilt top blocks you see below.
I live and work in Southern California. I source from any and all stores (not just fabric/quilt stores) and specialty shops around me. I don’t neglect any source as you never know what’s in their inventory at any given time. I use the simplest means of tools and techniques around. Here I use the 1 seam/5 Minute Flying Geese block. I am especially attracted to this method as the embossed-like folded up Goose piece is so quickly accurate to form and stands out so well without additional quilting. These are the 4 colors/patterns I use from saved remnants & bolt ends to make my idea into reality. This is who I am & what my creations will always proven to be-creations born from times of austerity (like my parent's Great Depression Of The 1930s & World War 2) to my own times of trial and tribulation. The first completed block in dark red & blue is simply a very rough draft or sketch of the completed top. The individual block units are the actual ones that will grace my daybed (about 65 inches by 85 inches) when completed.
