Last week I taught hi-tech tucks and this was the quilt I brought in as an example. The project was a notebook cover, but I wanted to show them what else they can do with this technique. I also wore a jacket with tucks on the sleeves :-)

I purchased the main fabric for this quilt 10-12 years ago at the Quilting Bee in San Jose (Mountainview?) and let it marinate in my stash until it was just ripe ;-) I added the tucks in a purchased, almost solid brown-black and one of my hand-dyed bright greens. It came out square which was too boring so I cut the bottom into a curve.

BTW, that's my daughter holding the quilt. I wish my hips were that skinny, LOL
