Making Spring Blooms #1

Spring Blooms #3 by Laura Wasilowski

It’s so great to be back in the studio! You may remember my Accidental Artist series from last month where I made this quilt, Spring Blooms #3. The quilt began as a large collage background with free-cut design elements on top and lots of hand embroidery added too.

Now I’d like to show you another method I have of creating fused quilt designs in an improvisational manner. This time I’m making a center vignette and then slipping a large background fabric behind it.

Fused fabric scraps from my stash including a fabulous red and blue woven collage.

It’s a different approach but still begins the same way: improvising with fused scraps from my fabric stash. Isn’t that woven collage rescued from a previous project fun? Can’t wait to get started!
