o honored to be part of my sister Karen’s @capitolaquilter recent design called “Merge” which was featured as the Modern Quilt Guild (MQG) October Quilt of the Month. MERGE, an Improv Abstraction quilt, takes an improvisational approach creating curves and is assembled with an alternative grid layout. Color placement gives the illusion of blocks merging into one another for a playful graphic composition.
Designed and pieced by sister Karen Foster, it will appeal to the experienced quilter, as well as, those just beginning their improv adventure. Use of the quilting motif I call “Brain Coral” or in this case “Brain Fog” was used on the perimeter. “MERGE” was presented at QuiltCon 2019 in Nashville. “MERGE” was featured in issue 7 of the Curated Quilts periodical featuring curves. “MERGE” was exhibited at the 2019 Pacific International Quilt Festival held in Santa Clara.
MQG quotes this on their website:
“Sisters can be so connected yet so different. Karen with artistic insights thrives in an intimate community, whereas Sharyl’s global experiences only heightens her mathematical perspective. Attending QuiltCon and quilting with the MQG gives them the opportunity to connect despite the distances.”
