Patchwork Society – February 2015

I decided to join a 10-month patchwork class at Modern Domestic. This is my second improv class, but this one is more structured.  Every month, we finish a block for 6 months and then we go into design theory and such.  We’re following Quilt Improv by Lucie Summers. Michelle Freedman is our fearless instructor and is fantastic.

We were supposed to have 1.5″ strips, but I decided to be different.  I cut some of the strips a little wider, so some of the print showed like the butterfly in the middle.  Here’s my block for this month.

  1. I like the sense of movement in this – showing the edge of squares in one strip, and then the bottom – or the edge of the butterfly’s wing, and then the butterfly itself – but not centered – gives this square a feeling of variable focus that is really neat.
