Last year I was invited to create a piece for a Seasonal Quilt Challenge for the fabulous mag. Machine Quilting Unlimited. The only stipulations were a size of 18″ x 24″, and using machine quilting. Most of you know I love to machine quilt, mostly free-motion, with minimal or no pre-marking the surface of the quilt. Sometimes I use the fancy stitches on my Bernina 1530, but mostly, I drop the feed dogs and put on a darning foot and let my hands control the stitching and patterns. I find it, well, very freeing!! So, I created a piece for Summer called Desert Dunescape, using my hand dyed shibori and pour dyed fabric. I liked the way the markings on the fabric looked like ripples on the sand dunes. Here’s the cover, with the fabulous machine quilting of Caryl Bryer Fallert: Click on this link.
