Black and White Quilt Printed

I finally finished printing this black and white quilt, which meant I could stitch up the remaining seams. I am so pleased with the results.

1. Larger Scale:

I have been trying to work on a larger scale. From 6"x6" farmer's wife quilt blocks to 2'x2' senior show quilts to 3'x3' for QuiltCon last year, and now almost 5'x5' !

2. Within a Design Challenge:

Seeing the "Black and White, Twelve Quilts" show this spring inspired me to create a quilt with the design parameters of monochromaticity. I work with light grey in almost every quilt, but I stretched myself and chose an off-white instead. I love the warmth the cream adds!

3. Stretching My Process:

As I explore the process of printing on quilts, I don't want to end up in a rut. With Stone + Bloom for QuiltCon last year, I experimented with masking off sections of the quilt. For this quilt, I went a step further and only partially pieced the top before printing. 

The next step in the process always takes me the longest: deciding how to quilt the quilt. I printed out my design sketch to audition several quilting options, and after some layering with tracing paper and several long collaborative FaceTimes spent staring more at my quilt than my boyfriend, I think I have decided on the direction I want to go. That boyfriend of mine is such a trooper.
