Another new project..........

I got out one of my Grab bags for Crazies (click here to see photo)  and layered a bunch and sliced them, then did another group and sliced at a different spot.  Then I sewed in the skinny strip. 
I started cutting 6" squares out of them lining up the insert along a line of the ruler (pile on the right).
Then it was play time. I have 32 squares so I can make a wallhanging 4 across by 8 down, 23" x 44" approximately.
I'll play with layouts after I get home from Chicago for my appointment with the person who will schedule the surgical procedure for my eye.
This is a quilt top that my friend Rosemary brought to the art quilters gathering yesterday.  You might remember I helped her baste another one that was similar.  She makes the squares and her daugher who will get the quilt determines the layout.  We will be basting this one soon.

I really like the look of the solids with the skinny stripe in them.

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

that is interesting with the skinny strip in those blocks,I'm wondering what that one will look like.

The other quilt looks so much like one of your designs you can tell who influenced your friend Rosemary :)

So clean and modern, nicely done. I never heard of Crazys before reading an older post you wrote about sorting them during a yard sale. Thanks for the reminder - I really want to order some. Best of luck with your surgical procedure on your eye

Very creative use of the grab bag! Rosemary's quilt is stunning! I love making string quilts and all of that color is right up my alley. Love it!

You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. Take care Wanda!

I like the suede look and the fall colors.

I love the thin stips in the squares. Those will be fun to play with.

Hope the appointment went well.

My goodness. This new solid quilt does not look like you AT ALL. :)

But I love it. I always have those Cherrywood fabrics in the back of my mind, but never quite get to buying some.

Eva said...

Something quite new! Did not expect you to try something like this. Now will you modify it in a traditional direction? I hope not. The irregularity in it seems so right.

Such simple procedure ... But WOW what a statement those blocks make ! Never would have thought of doing that, I think I could tackle a piece like that.

Rosemary's quilt top is amazingly beautiful.

I too continue my thoughts and prayers for you.

Ohh, lots of nice open spaces for quilting. I love the colors you have used, they look like suede in the pictures.

Jackie said...

I will be sending good thoughts your way while you are in Chicago.

Oh my what beautiful work you have been doing for the last 4 days. I love this modern looking but a bit like a modern amish quilt. Love the colors in it.

Good luck with your appt. Hope they do not make you wait too long.

I love the skinny strip squares. SO nice and clean looking. Wish we would get some sunshine don't you,
too dreary out there.

I love the squares with the skinny stripe in them -- they make me think of packages wrapped and under a tree!
