Positive Energy 4 is a quilt Karen Eckmeier created using her "Layered Curves and Peaks" technique.

Here is what Karen says about her technique, "I like the term “playing” with fabric. The more I can touch and manipulate fabric, the happier I am. My “Layered Curves” technique began in 1997 when I got frustrated with the tedious process of curved piecing. I just wasn’t enjoying the sewing stage anymore – so I tried cutting wild  curves into the fabric, ironing the edges under ¼”, then topstitching  to another fabric, I would cut the underneath fabric away and continue the cutting/layering/topstitching process until I either ran out of fabric pieces or I got bored. The result was a happy combination of two techniques – curved piecing and fabric collage."

Positive Energy 4 is 33" x 43."  You can learn about Karen at her website, www.quilted-lizard.com.
