New Work: Bush Berries
My latest quilt, Bush Berries, represents a good bit of experimentation for me. I started with a photo of my neighbor’s bush, which had many berries on it, in a variety of colors. I cut the photo into squares and began to rearrange them. Although I had 12 squares, I eventually decided on an arrangement with only 6. From there, I simplified the design lines, made a sketch, and reached for the fabric.
I’m very happy with the results and I plan to use this technique again. (I saw the technique on Quilting Arts TV, presented by Pat Pauly.)

I finally got to see myself on TV, and I was happy with my performance. Whew!
I’ll have two more episodes coming up on Quilting Arts TV. Check your PBS station to see when it might be on in your area. I’m in episodes 1902, 1908, and 1913.
Enjoy the adventure!
