Whenever I visit my local quilt shop, I delight in the displays of fresh new fabrics, all cut and folded in beautiful and unique ways. Jelly rolls? I have them at the ready for strip quilting and quick patchwork projects. Fat quarters? They are tucked into baskets in my studio.
I'm so inspired by fabrics and the endless combinations you can create. Maybe that's why I'm particularly drawn to patchwork sewing patterns. Once you start working with them, you can easily change out the fabrics and alter the arrangement.
One reason why many quilt artists prefer to fuse rather than piece their quilts is because piecing can be time-consuming.
