Improvisational quilt based on one by Denyse Schmidt
This quilt was designed as a lap quilt for Ben, my husband, and I finished it over the Christmas holidays in 2011. It remains one of my most favorite pieces for the solid white-on-white quilting lines, which give the simple negative space so much texture. It looks great on the chair in his office even when not in use. It was based of an image of a Denyse Schmidt improvised single log cabin block set against white. I finished this quilt with my left foot on the machine pedal, as I had just had surgery on my right foot that December. I was also doing a lot of driving with my left foot - slightly dangerous yes, but I was getting a lot of practice driving the sewing machine.
