Project

Random Quilt II

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I was surprised at how quickly the piecing went and the process of assembling the blocks to make something with colour flow was fun. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go for it - you can't make any mistakes here - anything goes.

What you will need

  • I used two complementary fabrics - the dark a large pattern batik and the light small dots. I added a couple of contrasting scraps to focus interest.

Q&A with jmn111

Grand2sew asked:
I really like this quilt, love the colors, especially your border and the little touches of other colors, very nice
jmn111 answered:
Thanks, I had fun doing this one. I intend trying something else that's as "free" as this one was.

I love our arrangement of the colors going from dense to scattered. Very nice.
jmn111 answered:
I prefer some "order" to the disorder. I initially laid out the blocks in a very diffuse order, but the colour density took over as I rearranged them on the floor so that I had a flow from condensed light to condensed dark. The border helped with that once the blocks were sewn together.
Sizzlewaggle asked:
Another beauty! I like the composition, too...the way the design extends all the way to the edge. Nice!
jmn111 answered:
That was an intentional part of the design once I had the basic quilt top sewn.
