I really enjoy quilts that are the efforts of more than one person. The variations in style, color selection, patience with matching seams, and fabric quality I think add to the charm.
That being said, when I thought about designing a landscape/cityscape for a group to tackle, I could just never quite see how I could make it simple enough (to get it finished in the 3 month self-set deadline) and have the outcome as unified as it would need to be to produce a recognizable image. But I did, and it worked. It’ll take a couple postings, but I’ll show you the process and maybe you’ll be inspired to tackle something similar.
What you see in the above photo is the backside of the 72″ x 14″ project that was stitched together from 36 two-inch strips. Each strip, 2-1/2″ wide x 14-1/2″ tall was completed by the different members of my guild. (Friends, they still are, even after asking them to tackle this right during the past holiday season!).
