This Art Deco Quilt started out as a quick doodle on graph paperDoodles are great inspiration for creative projects.... Click To Tweet
I save my doodles in a file.
When I’m stuck for ideas looking through my doodle file is my go-to place for inspiration.
The next step I took with this design was to “map” out the details in program called Electric Quilt 7
Using EQ for the Art Deco quilt was helped to see how the gray bars would look.
With the design planned…
The fabrics were carefully cut and assembled.
This quilt was designed with the idea of one “picture”- separated into 3 panels, like a Panoramic Photo
It is a simple modern look that can be done in lots of different ways.
Back to the Three-panel quilt, because now it is time to embellish it with the Circles Appliques.
I love adding circles to my quilts; they add a nice balance to the angular shapes.
To create the Panoramic Art Deco Quilt
- I placed the quilt on my design board with 1 1/2″ spaces between
- positioned my appliques in place, some crossing the span between
- Once the appliques are position where I want them
I marked and cut away the fabric that fell in between, and fused pieces in place
- With the circles fused in place, I choose to applique them with a narrow satin stitch, in neutral color
Excuse the threads 🙂 – It all gets tidied up!
Trim it up, Layer it, Baste it, quilt it, hang it 🙂
