Details

This quilt is one of an ongoing, though dormant series of quilts using novelty fabrics, applique’ and improvisational design. She Had to Have Her Latte was one of the first Improv quilts, but done in a different way than people commonly understand Improv quiltmaking today. In this quilt, I cut novelty fabrics into shapes with the primary focus being to showcase the motifs. Other pieces were put in between those focus pieces so the quilt fit together. There was no free cutting or rulerless cutting. The titles also imply a story, though I have never written the story.
