practice made practical

I have collected a number of samples in the studio of the one-line designs. These are done on flea market napkins, usually cotton or linen, 12 " x 12". I like their compact nature because I can sit down and experiment in one sitting rather than taking on a bigger piece. I start on one edge and travel extemporaneously across the surface to create a maze-like fill. The self-imposed rule is I can't cross any lines. The drawings I do inspire  the journey across the surface. Thought they might make good pillows for gifts. I have one quilt using this method, Same but Not, which will make its debut at Art Quilt Elements in Philadelphia in March.
