Convergence Quilt and Bias Tape Applique

I LOVE bias tape. Always have. I know it’s weird but, I do. I love everything about it. I love making it, looking at it, using it. So, after making yards and yards of bias tape for bindings I thought “what else can I use bias tape for?” Then I thought why can’t I use […]

So cool! Found you from the Sew Mama Sew write up :)

I can’t wait to try this technique to ‘draw’ on a quilt!

Brilliant. This quilt brings me back to Biology 101 in college–mitosis. Or was it meiosis?

Love this. Very simple… very cool take on the pattern.

Latifah – as a near-rule, I dislike applique, but you’ve wholly made me reconsider! I love this quilt and I’ve pinned it to my “Quilty Goodness” board on Pinterest (with proper credit, of course!). Feel free to follow me if you’d like: http://pinterest.com/lipglass/quilty-goodness/

This is a very cool quilt!

Hello Rachael, yes I draw the design on the fabric before attaching the bias tape. They are close but not perfect. :) I wanted a slightly organic look with the same shape.

Did you draw your fabric first before attaching the bias tape as your design seem so perfectly replicated.

Thanks for reminding me of this simple beauty! I am a fan of 1/2 inch over 1/4 inch binding lately, maybe I will call it “finger-sized!”

This was one of my favorites at the modern exhibit in Houston. It’s simple and stunning.

I love this quilt! I’ve always wanted to make a quilt with a DNA strain on it but I couldn’t think of how to start. I think that using bias tape as an applique might be the way to go! Beautiful quilt, beautifully shot as well.

Quite graphic and visually appealing, wonderful job!

I think this might be my favourite quilt I’ve seen online all year.

Gorgeous! Makes me want one. Thanks so much for sharing.

I really like it. Applique is an interesting method of applying design. I’ve used it a few times and have liked the result. You have shown it in terrific light here. Yes, the aqua is the focal point.

I’ve been playing around with Bias Tape Applique for awhile and love it. L.O.V.E. It! I haven’t posted about many of these quilts on the blog yet and will post more about them over time. It is such a versatile and fun technique and you too can learn the basics by learning how to sew […]

Wow! I love this block and now you have my creative juices flowing on other ways to use this technique–for example, spelling out words in cursive. Did you know that some schools no longer teach cursive? I’ve enjoyed your work ever since I discovered you on Flickr a few years ago, but you seemed to have taken a break for a while. Now, I’m discovering lots of interesting things on your blog. Thanks for sharing.
