When the CAC sent a call for entries for a GREEN exhibit I decided to submit a small piece that I call “Rolling Hills.”
I found a piece of green fabric that gradually shaded from one green to the next. Ombre, I think it’s called. I cut the fabric in strips and sewed a cream narrow strip between the green strips.
Then I added a backer and batting, basted it with safety pins and quilted organic lines with my sewing machine.
Then I shaped and cut the top of the quilt into a smooth curve for the “rolling hills.” Next I added the cream fabric to the top along with batting and backer and echo quilted the curve.
Instead of the regular 1/4” binding that I’m used to, I made it 1/2” to keep it consistent with the 1/2” cream vertical strips in the quilt.
I printed the label onto fabric that I had ironed to freezer paper and sent it through my printer.
This was a WIP, but now I'm all finished. Check other WIP at Freshly Pieced. And meet other quilters at Lily's Quilts.
