>Life’s Rich Tapestry (LRT) – Getting Started

>I purchased 8 sets of 5″ charm squares in African prints quite a while ago. These have been sitting in one of my collecting baskets while I thought about what to do with them. My original plan was to make a map out of the print fabrics as the basis for the quilt. While that was a noble idea, I’d like to learn some of the basic piecing methods like ‘chain piecing’ as I’ve missed out learning this in my projects so far, and hopefully that will make the project easier and faster to finish.
So, I took my charm squares to a sale a the local quilt shop, bought myself a few metres of fabric in coordinating colours and this is what I ended up with.

About bertcollections

I began quilting, with the help of some friends, in 2005, and have been quilting ever since. In that time, I’ve completed several projects in a variety of styles and colour combinations. My approach to quilting generally doesn’t involve using a particular pattern. I tend to have a concept I want to bring to life, or find a fabric on sale somewhere that looks like it could be turned into something fun. As the photos in the 'Introductions' post show, my quilts cross a range of styles, but generally use some strong colours and shapes.
