I'm over at the Saskatoon Modern Quilt Guild site today with a tutorial on random piecing. It's more of a guide to a technique that falls between patten-based and improv-based piecing. I've used it in a number of projects and think it's a great way to ensure your work is unique. I'd love to know what you think and if you try it out, please let me know!
here and you'll be taken to the SMQG site! Enjoy!
This is great! I can't wait to try it out!!ReplyDelete
Carly, your tutorial is so well done and a great explanation. I hope that it's okay if I pin it for future reference. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Excellent tutorial Carly! Will be pinning it too :o)ReplyDelete
I'm off to try it out :)ReplyDelete
the trick is, chosing complementary fabrics and keeping a "system" to their placement. Not really as easy to do as it might seem because it can really get out of hand if your 'values' are not carefully placed! A great excercise in learning how colours, hues, values and shades work together or against one another... That orange gives it zing and the printed purple brings the values together. Love it!ReplyDelete
I just checked out your Random piecing tutorial and its AWESOME!ReplyDelete
I love improv piecing and this one sounds like fun too!
I've done a few improv pieced blocks for swaps but never a big quilt ; ) enjoy your improvReplyDelete
Thanks for the great tutorial. I have done improv pieced blocks too for swaps, and I find it much harder than it seemed. I didn't think of strip sets. Your way works so much better.ReplyDelete
