I love the opportunity to explore quilting in ways I’ve never done before. Misik's challenge to explore tradition allowed me to attempt a method I had never tried: Bargello. Though it originated as stitching, Bargello and its linear, stepped form, has been adapted to quilting.
To me, piecing is the foundation of all sewing: cutting accurately, matching seams, sewing precisely. I chose Bargello because it encompassed all of these while also providing the spontaneity and discovery of my art quilting process. There is always something unpredictable, even with established methods.
Some days I think there is nothing new under the sun and other days I think there is nothing certain under the sun. What a grand adventure.
