Day12 Cultural fusion Quilts Blog Tour

The Day12!
For my readers in Australia and other countries half way around the world, this day already begun a while ago. I am late!!!

I have been a huge fan of Janet Treen since the day I discovered her blog. Her quilts are absolutely amazing. She is a dear friend, an award winning designer and quilter and a great teacher on the blog. I have learned so many tricks by reading her blog.

One of the reasons for adding gentle curves to the cutting is to mimic applique patterns. The reverse applique coverlet I posted yesterday is a perfect example of tribal work done without templates and patterns can have variation in the final result. I think the technique in the book will free you up on so many things.

Be curious
Be bold
Be spontaneous
Be creative
Be intuitive.

When you choose design, patterns, fabrics and colors, try something new just for experimenting. Often times we are so stuck in our ways, we limit ourselves of possibilities. Cultural Fusion Quilts is filled with images of possibilities..I hope you explore more as you work on your own quilts and put your own twists and turns to the quilts.

Daffodil Dreams

This is my definition of balance in design, color, positive and negative space and composition. People ask me if my graphic design study comes in handy when I work with my fabrics and colors. I do have a lot to discuss about that but not today.
