Sew Thinky Thursday - Style and a Finish...again!


With todays questions:  Describe your quilting style. Who or what influences you? How do you see your style changing over time?


Wow this is a hard question to ponder. I don't know if I can describe my quilting style if I don't really have one. I guess I can start by saying I like a lot of styles and types of quilting. I appreciate all the work that goes into each creation.  With that said, I like to try all kinds of things too but that doesn't mean I would hang them in my house. Does that make sense?


Kitty quilt I pieced and mom quilted by hand. Not my style but thought it was a cute kids quilt and I wanted to do the applique. 

Another one I wanted to piece. The orange fabric has sheep on it. 

Branching out here with this mosaic tile quilt. Love the look...the colors not so much. 



I do think of myself, right now at this moment, more of a modern quilter. I love the look and feel of where the modern quilt moment is going. I love the color...yum! I also love traditional quilts and techniques and am really falling for fiber art quilts and design. I have to say a really fun thing I love to see is the modern/traditional quilt mash ups. Taking really old traditional patterns and putting fun bold prints and colors into them.


Two small wall-hangings I made for Project Japan. They were sent to the victims of the Tsunami. 


I guess overall I am a quilter in style limbo which is okay with me. I will keep trying new things and see where each road leads. 

My mom is probably the biggest influence in my quilting life. I watched her cut, piece and quilt all by hand. She had a way with colors and could put just about anything together and it would look great. Only recently, after joining my local guild, have I branched out more and embraced all that is new in the world of quilting. I think the internet has opened so much up to individuals in terms of buying fabric, techniques with videos and tutorials and bloggers sharing so much of themselves. I hope to keep learning and trying new things and making beautiful things.

One of my Project Quilting entries this year..."Rift" brand new technique...totally love it and love doing it.

**I had another finish this month! I call this my Charlie Brown Chevron. I started this quilt top last summer (2012) and got it out yesterday and quilted it. Yeah me. It is going to one of my charity groups.
