The chain idea came from the rope! I have carried a wet rope all over the world in my suitcase, stained, fraying, etc. I always look for something that will be easier to clean and lighter. I would look for one with even larger links. They don't work exactly the same, it slips easier on the chain which is good, but the wrinkles aren't as tight and dye gets into the links so dyes the fabric from the inside. The rope adds some of the last color to the next piece (which can be ok and will probably wash out) unless soaked for a very long time.How did the "Chain" idea come to you?
I make lots of sorts of quilts. pieced, appliquéd, whole cloth, big wedding quilts, tiny baby quilts, and every size of wall piece. The first 200 or so were mostly hand quilted, now mostly machine quilted. please look at my web site, annjohnston.net under the gallery menu. you sill see some going way back under the collections item. There are lots of photos, not all, as the old stuff didn't have digital versions.What sorts of quilts do you make and are they planned or become as a response to the fabric you create?
Feel free to ask me any questions anytime.If there are any questions others have asked in the past that you think our readers will be interested in, please add them on to our questions.
Can you also send a few pics of your quilts?
