Fabric of the Year 2008 by Jlapac
This is the first of the Fabric of the Year Series. I worked on this piece at the 2009 CQFA quilt retreat in January 2009.
Basics of the project:
Cut one patch from each piece of fabric purchased in 2008.
One of the huge things I decided not long before leaving for the retreat
was to change the direction of the project. I started out with the idea
that the patches would be oriented in a rail-fence type setting. After playing around with that stack of blues
, I was really inspired by the different blues next to
each other. I played around with the unsewn patches I had. I decided to work on more of a blended / color wheel
type look to the quilt. this is the direction I have taken with this series since this first quilt. I quilted this piece on the longarm myself. You can see information about that experience at: http://artquiltmaker.com/blog/2009/07/longarming-foty-2008/
