Make Your Mark Quilt

One day while browsing the floral department, I was struck by the irregular beauty of handwritten dash marks on a piece of pottery, which sparked curiosity in me about how I could convey a handwritten dashed look with pieced fabric. To achieve this organic look, I used scissors for the strip sets, then squared them up with a rotary cutter. It was fun exploring color and value in my fabric selection. The blocks remind me of being at the stationery store as a kid, testing out the markers in a wide spectrum of colors on the sticky notes provided. This quilt showed at QuiltCon 2018 in the Modern Traditionalism category. The pattern is available in my shop!
