Making Friends With Freddy

Seeing the wonky baskets that I posted about a week ago prompted Jane to pull down a shoe box of bright scraps that she'd been saving and start working on an improv quilt of her own. She has a couple of books by Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston and has been wanting to give their style and try so now seemed as good a time as any.

She's got a great collection of fabrics...

and in no time was off to the races.

The spirals in the centres of the blocks are from placemats that she found at a flea market. There's a second larger size that she wants to incorporate as well.

I gave her a quick tutorial on how to put together a wonky star and I'd say she's a natural at these too. Luv those fabrics!

The star looks so great with her wonky blocks. I think she's going to have tons of fun planning and putting this one together. I'm certain that she and Freddy will be great friends by the time this is finished...M

I made a total of 32 blocks with the bull's eye centres. Now I'd like to make some more wonky stars and see where that takes me. I liked your idea of doing some type of centre medallion with the larger bull's eyes.

Fun blocks. I love the fact that she found that terrific fabric from placemats at a flea market. You just never know where good ideas and fabrics are lurking.
