Kaylene Maalste – C
Inspiration: I have always admired the creativity of Alicia Merritt with her special technique of creating curvy blocks. Following her technique I created a checkerboard effect.
Checkerboard came about because of a disaster in my original quilt, I love black and white so I created the checkerboard effect using Alicia Merritt’s technique. Following the swirls in the inner board I had embroidered in red a stylized “C”. The quilt is diagonally straight line quilted in black. Your eyes are not decieving you my inner block is not straight and I designed this way, just to be unconventional in the spirit of Alicia Merritt’s technique.
