I found many interesting and inspiring quilts at this weekend’s quilt show. My favorite one was this by Sidnee Snell. I love how it captured a moment. The same way paintings do. It makes me wonder who lives there and what kind of life they have or had.

Another interesting one has to be shown in a video. I’ve seen it before both in quilt and painting. Quilted by Flora Joy. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, someone comes up with a new technique.
I’ve been looking at photos of the La Passcaglia quilts on Pinterest for a while. I finally decided to tackle it. It’s paper-pieced “rosettes” that look like the cover of this book.
Here’s my first rosette.
This is going to be a very long-term project. Maybe years at the pace I’m going. But I really enjoy looking at the end result. I plan to post pictures as I go.
If you’re interested, Sharon Burgess has a great blog site, http://lilabellelane.blogspot.com.au/2014/07/la-passacaglia-new-start.html
Love of Patchwoking (love this magazine) has a good tutorial for English paper piecing even if you don’t want to do this particular project. Here.
Wish me good luck. I need it.
