Pick-Up-Sticks Quilt

 

pieced and quilted by Charlotte Shafto

 

This quilt is based on a technique called ‘Pick-Up-Sticks’ learnt at a workshop by Marilyn Doheny at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas in 1997.  The background fabric is cut up and narrow strips of fabric inserted.  Borders can be added with more slicing and inserting of strips.  Appliqué shapes are bonded to the  fabric and attached with machine sewing.  The quilt is entirely machine pieced and quilted.
