I forgot to add one of my favorite quilts yesterday when I posted about paper foundation piecing. All of the (stylized) mountains were done on a paper foundation. Its a little hard to tell here with this small pic but there are no truly straight lines in this quilt-I sewed down all of those triangular mountains in gentle curves, ironed them flat, then sewed new seams to take up the wrinkles that I had produced.
See the story behind this quilt (and why I have a Baba Yaga link in my favorite links box) at my art website: http://www.elizabeth-harris.com/Pages/G_Landscape.html
