Inspired by "Seven"

Remember "Seven"?
It was posted in July in my piece called "Seven and Friends." Since then, "Seven" has been donated to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative and has earned $50 for Alzheimer's Research (
Amazing for such a little piece of art!

This "Squiggles" technique, learned from Kris Gregson Moss (
and used with her permission for the Q.U.I.L.T.S. AAQI Challenge, reveals a new and exciting result each time.

The original layers of fabric, seen on the left here, are sewn with a free-hand drawn design and then cut away to reveal the gorgeous colors below. No one color touches itself in the work. The piece is completed with appliqué fibers sewn to cover the seams and free-motion quilting to accent the other design elements. 

Below is the final result for this new piece. Although quite abstract, I think it looks like a child waving palms on Palm Sunday.  What do you see it in?

Here is the next set of fabrics to be "Squiggled"!
Wait and see what beautiful piece of art they will become!

  1. It is amazing and wonderful what we are all able to do with the donation of our little quilts..and I just love it. And I loved 7 and I love Squiggles in technique so thanks for sharing her link!

  2. You are welcome. It seems that every technique can somehow be adapted into an AAQI 9 by 12 inch donation quilt. Amazing really!
