With one main autumn focus fabric and a ton of swapped Batik strips I was able to make this fun collage quilt. A Popular quilting instructor in my area taught a design class and we did this in sections as a collage of what techniques we learned.
"I have been slow to show what I've done with my beautiful batiks that I joined in swapping 3 years ago - 3 years! Has it been that long? Well I've had these wonderful strips all in one bin and started a collage class last year January that…"
"I'm back among the living! Thank you, Chef Lisa, for your concern. We arrived with all our trucked boxes and furniture on Jan. 22 and put it all into storage. We got into our house on about Feb 7, so it's been a long…"
Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
Quilter, seamstress, knitter, crocheter, blogger and a bit OCD about them all! Daily Priorities: Bible reading, Husband, Family, and trying to keep it all in order!
How many quilts have you made?
Oh, my, I don't know. The past year, 3, yes maybe 3 per year since 1992 - real quilts that is. But I only have kept a couple to show for it all.
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
How long have you been a quilter?
I have always patched things together since I learned to sew at my mother's knee, but I became a real traditional quilter in 1992 when I was asked to teach a group of Australian ladies how to quilt (being an American they thought I automatically knew :-)
What is your favorite quilting technique?
Machine, I do enjoy hand quilting but I have 'pain' restrictions so it's back to the sewing machine.
Contact me as I really messed up the green group. One of the gals asked for two spots in the green and I missed it, so now I have a dilemma. Who has the green spot? As I gave it to you and it was kind of a toss up! Sorry
Annette I have you on the list. Just send me 12 of the same 2 1/2" quilt store quality batik with a return postage envelope to me at Lisa Gorski, 2011 SE 8th Terrace, Cape Coral, FL 33990-1680. As soon as I get the 12 members together I will send them back to you.
Go to the 'Strip Swap' page where I placed extra instructions on how to cut strips with out getting a bend in them.
Hullo Anne The quilt for Ingrid and Simon was fun to do and started off as a picnic quilt.. you know not too big Then we wanted to include all the special fabrics with food, flowers and animals with things that reflect their interests .. so it grew somewhat to be a king-size quilt.
