|Jenny Egg likes the quilt too!|
Sometimes, cleaning out the scrap bin leads to an obsessive block making adventure!
How many different fabrics can I dig up? What colors can I put to together, how big can I go?
That is what happened last year when I put this block together for our Metro MOD guild Challenge.
After we made ours during our guild, I loved the scrappy look and set about making a king size one, for fun!
One always thinks it will make a dent in your scrap bins by doing this kind of quilt...
But I can safely say, "No, you don't, But, I had fun trying!"
This month, the quilt is in Issue #59 of Quilters Companion. You can find this magazine from Australia usually at Barnes and Noble, or online at ZINIO.
I love the magazine. They always have great quilts in them, fun,modern, eclectic styles... They were kind to me, and did a nice article too! Also mentioning that I will be in AU teaching in March at Materials Obsession.(Click for details)
Time is flying by, and I can't wait!
Kathy Doughty has had this quilt hanging in her shop for the past month or so. I will get to pick it up personally when I arrive there! If you want to catch Kathy state side, she is teaching at Quilting by the lake this summer, along with many other great teachers. Myself and a bunch of pals are going up to sew in her "Fractured" class.. (another great SCRAP quilt!) How much fun is that going to be?
Don't know QBL? FUN place... pop over and see there class list...
