At the Material Girls Quilt Guild show, there was a group of quiltscalled "slice" quilts. Several people got together to work on this project. Each person chose a photograph, and sliced it into pieces. The pieces were handed out to the other people, who then replicated the slice in fabric. The original person who owned the photograph reassembled the pieces of the photograph into a quilt. I thought the resulting quirkiness of the finished quilts was very cool.
Attaching binding to an irregular edge is a challenge. In the example left, which is my own Autumn’s Edge, I used a firm batik fabric and cut the binding quite narrow, double fold and on grain so that I could make mitres in each corner, and each was a slightly different angle. The uneven edge suggests leaf edges randomly falling on the forest floor. Gina - contemporaryquiltart.org
Another series I made several years ago were shaped like hanging pendants. At left you see A Glimpse Through the Forest. I dyed all the fabric, and the “trees” in the forefront were cut from fabric that had been pleated vertically, then horizontally, then set into a 2 quart milk carton. I poured 3 different dye colors onto the fabric and let it sit overnight. The black triangles, are merely the background of the photograph. Gina - contemporaryquiltart.org
