Finished and improvisional quilt

I have had this small trial quilt sitting on a board for 2 months. It needed edging – it was too thick to face nicely and I wasn’t happy about binding it.  I tried a Leslie Morgan suggestion to run 4 lines of stitching around the edge.  It wasn’t working so it now has a zig zag edge which works.  It needs to be mounted on a black canvas next.

The quilt has been made using Marie Roper’s improvisional piecing method – I love this technique.  The centre has some of my art work that has been laminated. I did learn on this quilt which was meant to be bigger that laminated fabric should only have very gentle curves. There is no give in the laminated fabric so tight corners are unnecessarily difficult!
