Fancy Fleas

Monday, May 28, 2012 3 Comments »
Let me get the apology out of the way:  I'm sorry not to have blogged in months.  No real excuse other than a lack of time and a lack of motivation.  A friend of mine once described it as losing her mojo  -- not sure if it was my mojo that was lost or if my ADQD (Atttention Deficit Quilting Disorder) just stole my focus.  Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things and be a more faithful blogger.

This weekend was spent doing laundry, cooking and sewing. There are tons of projects in the works that really need to get done (there's that ADQD again), but I had some charm packs of Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy that were calling my name, so that's what I worked with.


This is the first time I've gone out of the box and let the quilt design itself.  I've never had the guts to wing it before.  I made a ton of HST's, then started arranging them on the design wall.  The result was this asymetrical top.  I like it -- just not sure if I LOVE it.  Wish I'd made it a couple of rows longer.  And I'm not even sure where it will end up.  Could be a baby quilt, or it might be a gift for someone special.  What do you think?

Wow, your post popped up on my feed after the long silent period. Love the quilt. Good for you listening to the fabrics. If no one claims it I have a spot that would love to be adorned :D

I like it a lot, Pat! I did an aysmmetrical quilt like this last year - I love that look. Can't wait to see this one in person!

Glad to see you back! And what a lovely, eye-catching quilt! The off-center arrangement is really neat! Congrats on moving outside your box! Some of us might learn to follow -- you never know!
