Patchwork is not necessarily an end it itself – it lends itself to being a very creative background – and here Valerie shows you some of her personal quilts to act as inspiration.
This doesn’t have to be complicated or time consuming and Valerie has a variety of quits made – often with applique work – that have a pieced background. It is also a great way to use up your scrap stash.
Traditional and Modern
You can think about using some traditional blocks such as Log Cabin; or be more creative with some woven strips; or create a shaded landscape style background with simple strips to which you could add wavy lines rather than straight.
