Photos of Colorful Items Even Though They Are Not Bed Quilts


Remove Formatting from selection

I'm beginning to think that there are no quilters left on the WWQP Bulletin Board any more. There are chatters over on the chat page but I've not seen anyone post a photo of a quilt on this page in a very long time so I'll just use it for a brief "show and tell" of what I did yesterday and what I plan to do in the days ahead. Yesterday there was a one day mystery adventure that promised a table runner that was sponsored by "Merry Mayhem" at Planet Patchwork. I chose Christmas colors and used snowflake fabrics I found at JoAnn's ... no great investment in case the project turned out to be a disaster. It was quite simple and I might be tempted to do this thing again because it was indeed very simple and it was done in a day despite the fact I had an aching back.

The other image shows my design wall more or less plastered with fabrics I begged off of my friends at another forum. I plan to enter a contest sponsored by a guild in Australia and I need lot of "wonky stripe" fabrics. I put out a call to my buddies on the other forum and they, fabric fiends that they are, came through with a flurry of envelopes with bits and pieces of glorious colorful "wonky" stripes that cannot possibly go together. But I shall try my best. LOL

    Judy, I saw several stripes that I already have, but there are several in my stash that weren't represented. Do you need any more? I'd be happy to cut a strip and send some.

    Thank you for your kind offer, Kathi, but I have plenty of stripes, more than enough. The women on the About.com quilting forum are certain that I am crazy, planning something that needs lots of little pieces of clashing stripes and perhaps I am. I'll post a photo when I am finished with my "Wonky Star" project.

    I had to laugh at the "wonky star" as Meredith in Calgary and I had an exchange of reds and creams several years ago. The intent was to make a wonky stars quilt, but my brain wouldn't let me do it. I ended up with symmetrical stars with perfectly even points. I called the quilt "Left brain, right brain...I don't do wonky stars."

    So much of my work turns out wonky even when that was not my intent. I have a guest room with no quilts for the twin beds. I have enough scraps to make a dozen quilts. Wonky quilts appeals to my right brain orientation. Plan to get started soon. Now you have made it respectable, Judy, and I appreciate that.
