I’ve been itching to do a new strippy quilt and, whilst I am no fan of Bargello quilts, I do love a zingy zig-zig. My starting point for this queen size version was a stack of handwoven Ikat fabrics from Uzbekistan. To fill out what I had in my collection I added a grand and colourful variety of solid coloured silks. 

Technically this quilt is very easy to cut and stitch. It is made in a Quilt-As-You-Go style over narrow strips of batting fused with backing fabric. We start with small strips that we add to as necessary. The length and the width of the strips are arbitrary. The size of you quilt is also arbitrary. I love my lustrous silks but cotton fabrics also work beautifully. Monochromatic versions, rather than my wild scrappy look, would also be deliciously restful.

Stargazey Quilts

Since 1996, under the business name “Stargazey”I have developed contemporary piecing and appliqué techniques in a distinctively contemporary, colorful, rule-breaking style. C&T has published my three books; Cut Loose Quilts, Reverse Appliqué With No Brakez and Free & Eazy Circles. Each book also explores less structured approaches to quilt making. Designing fabrics for Marcus Brothers is probably what I'm best known for. My twenty-two collections of colorful,simple prints are easily recognizable. Whilst my publishing new work is minimal of late uploading older much loved patterns is still ongoing. I'm really loving being intricately involved in growing skills in my local textile community whilst forging new paths in my artwork.
