    QuilterMomof3, I love your quilt made from Grandpa's jeans and shirts! What a great idea!
    Why do I keep trying to find the "like" button?

    Petthefabric, you are truly a master of using scraps to make gloriously unique quilts.
    Djmat, your little Learning quilt is great. I can just see a child looking for all the things they can find in it. I say again that this is one of the best threads on the board. :-)

    Petthefabric, what was your process for the last one? Did you piece or applique? I love your use of thread to extend the motif to the border. Adds so much movement and an element of further interest to the eye.

    Krystyna, I think this is the one you're referring to, right?

    There's some little pieces. They were all sewn as one big piece then cross cut as needed for the design. I started by laying two fabrics on top of each other, then cutting a gently curned line through them. Shuffled them and sewed them to the opposite color. Kept adding more fabrics in the same manner, auditioning on the design wall as I went. At some point I felt it was too predictable and needed some variety, hense the light green that crosses over several seams. I didn't want the border to severly chop off the pattern, so even the border is sewn on with curved seams and the quilting travels into the border. I can think of 6 quilting books that got me to this technique. And 6-10 that contributed to design principles and elements. It's hard to explain in a short space. What other questions do you have?Name:  Quilt slide show_0047.jpg

    My scrappy is a memory quilt. Truly scraps from all kinds of fabrics. My sweet DSIL passed away a few years ago. She made her clothes, dolls, crochet, all kinds of crafts. Everyone in the family has dolls or other things she has made for them, even though she had limited income and was quite ill for a long time. I was given a lot of scraps from all sorts of fabrics. I got a wild impulse to make a quilt for the brother who was closest to her. I have just the top done so far. Hope it will be good enough to honor her memory. Name:  IMG_0010.JPG

    It is beautiful. How sweet of you to make this.

    Lady T, that scrappy bear paw is wonderful. For some reason you usually see them in earth tones ... I guess more like a bear ... but your delicious scrappy colors really give the pattern a new look ... and I love it! Thanks for the inspiration!

    OMG!! I LOVE your chicken quilt! Mind if I borrow your pattern? I have so many chicken fabrics and panels that would be awesome with the patchwork blocks you designed. All I can say is WOW and thanks for sharing! I can't stop looking at it!

    Petthefabric -- when you get together with Krystyna, let me know so I can be there. You definitely have an eye for color and design -- both of you. I wanna watch the two of you and hope some of your skills can be absorbed thru osmosis.

    petthefabric....what were the books you used to learn from for those? I have a book called Expanding the Basics, beyond basic piecing, by Ruth McDowell, which is interesting. You inspired me to get it out again and read some of it. I haven't tried the practice projects yet. But I was wondering about the ones you learned from? I've considered trying to do a basic landscape a couple times but think I need more directions.
