"Beach House" Linocut Mini Quilt
I made another mini quilt. I can't help myself. I enjoy making them so much! In each one, I try something new. I am planning a bed size quilt using linocuts and with each mini quilt, I am trying out new techniques, piecing, quilting and ideas that will help me make decisions about the big quilt.
This time, I used pieces of batik left over from my underwater mini and a table runner that I made a couple of years ago. The print in the center is my seashell linocut on natural linen. This time, I tried out a new piecing idea with a square center design rather than rectangular.
I also tried some freemotion quilting on the linocut itself. I really like that and will do it again.
The back of the quilt is pieced as well in the same materials.
This one will be in my shop. Hopefully is it destined for a beach house. That's where I envision it hanging, hence it's name!
