    Fractured Quilt Wall Hangings... What do you think about them?

    These are two fractured quilt wall hangings I just finished making. Instead of simply adding borders or binding to the squared up quilts, I decided to live dangerously and cut wavy edges with my rotary cutter instead. I tried two different methods of adding the backing/bindings. On the Poppy Quilt I put the backing face down on the top before making the wavy cuts. Sewed all but a small section around the edges and then turned it inside out to get a non-binding look. On the Sunflower Quilt I used bias binding to add contrast and highlight the sunflower. How do you think they look? Name:  poppy.jpg

    I love them!! I recently purchased the book on how to do them, so that is one more thing on my wish list of things to do.

    Very pretty! A friend gave me some fabric that looks justlike that. She had some in poppies, some in iris's, and I think there was also some in sunflowers. I am taking the poppy and cutting it out to put on another fabric and then "thread painting" it. That fabric was so very nice...loved the look and feel of it which I would say was real quality fabric. My friend has done some gorgeous work with fabric like that....very artistic. Sure mine won't be as gorgeous as hers but I will have fun with it. TYhere is a blue iris which she also gave me that I love but thought I should first practice on one I wasn't as crazy about. Funh to try different forms of creativity with fabrics.
    Do what you love, love what you do.

    The wavy border looks great. I like each of your edge finishes.

    Cannot wait to see your quilt. I'm always interested in learning/seeing a new way to do something. I've never tried thread painting. Its on my list of things to try soon.

    To do this type of project, it takes 4 panels of the same size/subject. I learned to do this at a class I took at a quilt shop near me. It's not hard to do but it does require absolutely accurately cut strips. Had a great time making both. I'm now working on a new project using smaller fractured blocks.
