When I was first introduced to quilting, I quickly fell in love with wonky quilts. I have since moved more towards traditional techniques, but I still have a soft spot for improv. I recently obtained Liberated Quiltmaking II, Liberated Medallion Quilts, and Quilt Improv, and the 3 books had me brimming with ideas. I grabbed a fat eighth stack of Arizona that was sitting on my sewing table, added a few coordinating fabrics, and got to work.
It has been fun and refreshing to piece this without a plan. I've been adding each border one at a time and then deciding what I want to do next. Although I like this fabric line, it's very different from what I normally gravitate to, so it's been a bit of a challenge working with it.
I'm working on the last border now. I always forget how long wonky log cabins can take to sew, even when you're chain piecing. I sorted the remaining scraps by size and i'm using up all the tiniest pieces on this 4" wide border. It's fun, but a little exhausting. I'll be glad when I'm finished. I've ordered backing and thread and I'm planning to hand-quilt it. Should be fun.
