    I am a beginner and I don't know the work of Isabelle Boulin, or the watercolor technique, or your piecing technique. But I recognize something beautiful when I see it!

    How will you finish the four blocks? Please keep us in the loop!
    thank you

    Very interesting method of doing those squares. The quilt is really sharp.
    I don't understand how you do the second set of lines though when you sew it up - I understand the first lines but when you turn it and sew 90 degrees how do you handle the intersections? Very cool method. Your quilts are always just fabulous!

    That is just wonderful, and your technique in the previous post is great. What a good way to keep control of all those little squares after you get them just where you want them! That is beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing that with us.

    After I sew one of the directions, I slit (cut) it to the line, and I sew the other direction.

    It's beautiful. THank you for showing us. I also wondered if you needed to slit to the line, and you verified that. Will these be wall hangings (I can't tell the size)
