Here is another quilt that I made using my cut 'n switch method of improvisational piecing. It is not as intricate as "Modern Art in Quilt Form". In this quilt I used only 6 colors: white, gray, light blue, medium blue, medium purple and dark purple. There were 16 in Modern Art. While some of the smaller blocks have quite a few "cuts" in them, there are still large shapes or solid colored areas in this quilt. This quilt is also finished more traditionally, with borders and bindings. In Modern Art, the design goes to the edge of the quilt and it is faced. I do like the variation in the size of blocks that I used in the quilt, as well as the asymmetrical inner borders.
I love using leader/ enders when I am chain piecing. It was an idea from Bonnie Hunter. Instead of using a scrap piece of material in between chains, use two small blocks. You can work on two project projects at once! I keep a pile of 2" scrap squares next to my machine for this reason...Happy piecing!
