Just over a year ago, I searched for Modern Quilter groups online. I found one and read about a talented author in need of test quilters. Always wanting to challenge myself and learn new techniques, I got in touch with Sherri Lynn Wood. I was expecting her to turn me down to try the instructions out as I had contacted her after the deadline. But she didn't, and promptly sent me all I needed to get started on the process. All test quilters were given a few instructions she calls "scores" like in a musical score. The whole process fit in to my way of creating, no patterns, no pictures and freedom. The first thing I did after receiving my score was to put on some classical music which helped me to relax and let the creative juices flow.
Once I got going on it, I didn't stop until it was finished. This is unusual for me as I have basket loads of UFO's needing the finishing touches or are at different stages of completion.
My quilt was not chosen to be in the book, but I wasn't even expecting to be able to test the score at all. So, I am very happy with the outcome and I can't wait to try out all the scores in her new book,
"The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters", by Sherri Lynn Wood.
My finished quilt is a small wall hanging measuring 29" square.
