Quilt = fabric + batting + thread. It’s amazing what quilters can create with simple things like these. Let’s add some colors (and a design too) and we couldn’t define a quilt better.
Many times all the elements of a quilt contribute to its success. And sometimes one element is more important than other.
I am happy that I managed to make quilts in different techniques that show what important role each element can play in the anatomy of a quilt.
|1. Shadow Trapunto Quilt; 2. Patchwork Quilt; 3. Wholecloth Quilt|
It was May 2012 when I finished this shadow trapunto quilt. Definitely the batting is the star of this quilt. The batting- this layer that is invisible for most quilts!
Then on April 2013 I made (with my friends) this patchwork quilt. The simple solid fabric allowed us to piece a friendship!
Then I thought that the thread can’t be left out and in May 2014 I finished this wholecloth quilt.This quilt is all about thread!
It would be impossible for me to say which quilt or which technique I love more!
We quilters are very lucky. There are so many things that help us tell our story! What do you use most to tell YOUR story ?
