Gerrie posted about her great experience with Louisa Smith last week. She also posted some in-progress pictures of her strips and curves quilt. Hey look! I made one too.
I took a class from Louisa in 2003 when I lived in Florida. She was delightful. She is so enthusiastic about her particular technique and I learned a lot. Here's the strata I started with before class.
And here's the finished quilt. Not a great picture. Oh well. I gave it to my sister and brother-in-law as a wedding gift. I really like it. I especially like that one circle that creeps over the border on the left.
Here's the label. I made up some stuff about how lines and circles are like a marriage.
Are you interested in this technique? You can be the proud owner of this book and template set. I'll give you a superfantastic deal. Just click on my email address under my picture on the right if you're interested. (Hey look at the camera reflection in the templates. Arty!)
You know how once you've done something and really explored it through and through, you're ready to let it go? I don't think I'll make another strips and curves quilt. But I will always have the skills and ideas that I developed while making it. Plus, Matt and Joanna like the quilt hanging on their wall. Everyone wins!
