(The Long Serpent)
Foto series which shows how the quilt top was "built"
|Selecting the fabrics. There had to be two different yellow/orange gradations with 12 fabrics in each, one bright for the front swirl, and one a little shadier for the back swirl. Not very easy to find so many yellows in the "pink and blue period". Purple/violet/magentas for the background.|
|Cut strips, sew together and cut again.|
|Build the front swirl on the design wall.||Build the back swirl.|
|Build the background.||Background finished. Everything is just pinned to the wall.|
|Some patches were ripped out and replaced with a variety of lime green patches to form the long green serpent. Then the top was sewn together.||Detail of the finished quilt.|
Finished quilt to the left.
I have now published the pattern for this quilt.
