mad woman

I appear to have thrown all my new year convictions out the window and have gone back to my mildly insane crafty ways. I have made my first quilt top - it's for my little niece. I hacked into piles of fabric with abandon, without measuring properly, excitedly throwing squares around and sewing them together wonkily. I attempted to be more mathematical about planning my quilt, but because I am numerically challenged and insanely impatient, I started cutting into the fabric with the rotary cutter before I knew it and there we are. It's slightly wonky. But I like it. I like the gentle colours and the randomness. But I will try and be a bit more structured next time.



And behold - the thousands of piles of fabrics I purchased for the next quilt, for niece number 2.

Oh, now, you're my kind of quilter! I love it to bits. I'm an impatient hacker-type as well. Have been cutting up strips for a kind of bricky quilt.

I also love the mix of fabrics for the next quilt. Very ecclectic - you seem to have a good eye for mixing very random fabrics. After the monochrome I've been working with, my next quilt is looking very ecclectic indeedy... yay.
