Artistry in Quilting


Fiber Art by Mary 
The first quilt I ever made was an Ohio Star pattern, made using a “Quilt-as You-Go” method. Each block was made completely (with batting and Backing) and then joined together. In those days quilting was done all by hand, and took forever. Rotary cutters and mats were just starting to come into use and became much easier to use than cutting with scissors. I finished my quilt and eventually entered it into the Solano County Fair. The judge complimented the front but said the back looked sloppy from all the “joints”. I never again used that method. My second quilt was a “Schoolhouse,” which was a lot of fun but again took a long time to quilt. By this time, I had purchased a quilting frame. I think I used it to hand-quilt 4 pieces before...
