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
