The Structure of a Quilt |
Becky Goldsmith | C&T Publishing | ePub | ||||
the structure of a quilt IDENTIFY THE BACKGROUND AND FOREGROUND I have always used a simple system to build my quilts. I identify the foreground and background in every quilt I make, whether the quilt is pieced or appliquéd. A painter would refer to these as positive and negative spaces. This is an easy concept in an appliqué quilt. The appliqué, which is the focus of the quilt, is the foreground and the positive space. The appliqué sits on top of the background, and the areas not covered by the appliqué are the negative space. The positive and negative spaces are easy to identify. You can also identify the foreground and background in a pieced quilt, even though you may never have thought about it in quite this way. Whether a pieced quilt is simple or complex, some part of the design is more important than the rest. The dominant part of the quilt design is the foreground (positive), which may have several components. The rest is the background (negative). See All Chapters |

Flying Geese |
Emily Cier | C&T Publishing | ePub | ||||
FINISHED BLOCK SIZE 81″ × 81″ Flying Geese quilts are traditionally very geometric, with orderly designs. This quilt takes the order to another level entirely by arranging square versions of a Flying Geese block in mathematical precision. Note: If you are curious, this pattern follows the Sierpinski carpet fractal. Those aren’t typos in the cutting chart! This quilt is made of 3,803 pieces, almost all of which are easily foundation pieced. Notes: 1. Quilter’s Freezer Paper Sheets or Carol Doak’s Foundation Paper (see Resources, page 63) make paper piecing easy. 2. These foundation pieces are cut with a ″ seam allowance all around, for ease of paper piecing. 3. Use your favorite method to foundation piece these blocks. Photocopy or trace the foundation pattern on page 55 and make 512 of Block A, using Solid 1 (dark and light) and background fabrics placed as shown in the following illustration. Trim blocks, leaving a ¼″ seam allowance all around (3½″ × 3½″). Remove the foundation paper. Tip After trimming the blocks, remove the foundation paper to reduce bulk when continuing with the next step. Some quilters prefer to leave the paper on to keep the block square. It comes down to a personal preference. See All Chapters |

Spark 6. Make a Huge Mess |
Carrie Bloomston | Stash Books | ePub | ||||
Every day when I pick up my daughter from preschool she is covered in remnants of her creative day, and I mean covered. She is dirty, sandy, gritty, painted, and stained. There’s sandwich on her face and sand in her pockets. Her shins are unrecognizably brownish-gray. I kneel down next to her, beaming, and say, “That’s what I like to see! I know you had a good day because you got messy!” Do you honestly think I want that dirty child in my new car? Absolutely not! But I know I am being a really good mom in those moments because I am encouraging her creativity and validating her process and exploration. She can get in the bath later. Life is filled with opportunities, and if you are worried about getting dirty or making a mess, either metaphorically or for real, then you will be limited in your possibilities. And so it is with grown-ups. You know you are on the right track if you are making a mess of something. You have to fall on your face sometimes. Who is your life for? Is it a big performance that you have rigged up with hidden strings and edited with Instagram-style filters to make you seem beautiful and perfect all the time? I did that for a long time. The years I Photoshopped my life into perfection and managed my image for some perceived gaze were some of the least creative of my life. See All Chapters |

Square Play |
Becky Goldsmith | C&T Publishing | ePub | ||||
square play FINISHED QUILT: 50˝ × 50˝ Made by Becky Goldsmith. If you want a quilt to be noticed, consider using lots of red. Red is bold. It makes you stop and look. In red, this quilt reminds me of a bandana on a warm summer day. From the very beginning, I knew this quilt would be primarily red. Red, blue, and yellow form a triadic color scheme, which helped me to decide on the two accent colors. My first thought was to make the narrow strips yellow. Refer to Auditioning Pieced Quilts to see how that turned out. Luckily, I made a few sample blocks to test the color combination before sewing all of the blocks. The sample blocks also helped me realize that I needed to do more to highlight the small and medium-sized squares that form when the blocks are sewn together. My solution was to use solid red in the position that creates the diagonal grid. Medium-scale and small-scale prints come together to form distinctive smaller squares. MATERIALS See All Chapters |
