This is "So Ends A Fair Day", a mini quilt I made in January 2009. I made it to try to break my way out of a quilting rut I was in! It was so much fun to make, too!
I took a 9" x 12" piece of fusible web, and cut the pieces with my rotary cutter! I knew I wanted to make a sunset, and free cut the pieces to give me what I needed. Next, I dug into my batik stash and pulled out pieces I thought would work, fused the web to them, cut them out and re-assembled the piece of fusible web onto a muslin background with the batiks now attached. Then I covered every seam with fusbile bias tape. I then layered and basted it. Sewing the bias down became the quilting, too!
This quilt really helped me branch away from the "every quilt must have a million pieces" rule, and I had SO much fun making it :)
