Bright and crazy

dsc00334-1

For my MQResource friends, this is a total repeat of the post you’ve already seen.  Same photos, same everything.

For everybody else, this is my crazy log cabin (well, courthouse steps…) quilt that I pieced and showed off several weeks ago.  The IQ quilted 4 edge to edge quilts for me last week, so I decided that I “deserved” to get one of my own done — and this one ended up being all freehand.  I did experiment with recording some stuff, but I have a lot to learn and it wasn’t going well.  (My fault, not the IQ).

This is a very photo-intense post, you’ve been warned.

Everything’s freehand, even the wonky crosshatching in the borders and the cornerstones.  Most of the thread is Lavender, the borders are a dark purple that matches the fabric.

This was very fun to do.  I love to quilt.  Can you tell?

Oh, and I have some ideas about how I might take this quilt even further over the top…
