Here’s a close up of the skewed fabric. I didn’t do it exactly on the bias just at an angle to break up the strong checker board pattern. When I do this it always reminds me of jazz or improvise. All my quilts are full of it: on the fly improvisation that creates visual interest. I love problems. In fact, when a quilt is too planned out or too easily visualized in my head, I often end up not finishing it. I feel like all the decisions have been made for it so there is no point in finishing, no quest, no journey.
Also, just a note, the plaid from a maternity dress I made. It is a slightly warped or textured fabric.
