Quilts From The Edge

Each year as a member of the Canadian Quilter's Association, I participate in their Trend Tex Challenge. As the upcoming conference will be held in Newfoundland this year the theme chosen for the challenge is Quilts From The Edge. The 5 fabrics are gorgeous marbled pieces and quite intense in their colouring which will produce some rather bold quilts.

I decided to make a "perspective" piece this year, and began by sketching my design on freezer paper. It's 24" square, so I had to tape two sheets together. I used coloured pencils to shade in hues to match my fabrics, numbered and labelled each section on the sketch and began the process of cutting up the pattern.
