Marbled Mania, in progress
I have only been quilting for 15 months but I have some rules I like to follow:
1. asymmetry I don't like making quilts with a repeated pattern, especially a symmetric one—as the eye only looks at one part of the design and then mentally finishes it.
2. express the fabric Instead of using published patterns, I like to have the fabric inspire the design of a quilt.
3. an unexpected element The addition of a non-matching fabric or an unusual detail adds delight to a quilt. Sometimes a fabric that would be considered “ugly” is the perfect touch.
