Infinity // 4 and last !!

Finally here are the promised pictures of the completed quilt.

INFINITY, 140 x 112 cm, hand pieced, machine quilted

My goal was to focus on two main colors and to use many different shades to bring them to life and let them shine. Also I wanted a rather simple pattern but with a surprising movement.
I really love the non-predictable repetition of the colors. That represents very well one of my favorite design element. I call it the regular irregularity or the irregular regularity. In other words a lot of repetition with sudden shifts. I like designs that keep your brain busy. As soon as one thinks to have understood its logic a sticking point shows up.

Lima // 7

Making nice progress with hand quilting Lima. I don't have a fix plan. I quilt a few lines and then decide how to go further. This means I have a lot of decisions to make. Some come easy, some take their time.

Infinity // 2

It has taken two months but meanwhile there is progress with this wip too. My original plan was to hand quilt but I've opted against it. I want to quilt a grid adding smaller squares to the pieced squares. So I've decided to add a more dense texture and machine quilting is the right choice in this case.

Quilting a grid isn't as easy as it may seem. You really have to go slow and keep everything flat and smooth or you will end up with puckers where the lines cross. So far it is going well.
