another night of play and E's goddess is getting cozy in her new home:
The spikes on the left came from this book and were so easy I think I need to use them in other projects soon. The Kaffe Fassett print on the right side just fell out of the scrap bowl as I was looking for purples (it was in with the blues, but jumped out to play in this quilt). It had a strange angled cut running along the side which I smoothed out into a gentle curve. On the bottom I added the patch of purple strips which had been in my crumb block pile forever-- I bought it at a scrap table at a quilt show in MA. That edge was also jagged but my curves were not so gentle here.. I like piecing curves, but i need more practice because I ended up with little puckers (you can see on the deepest bit). The Erin McMorris turquoise just jumped in as well, I have been using that fabric in everything lately, so why not try it here too.
It has been very freeing to work on a quilt I didn't plan on making. I'm not worrying a lot about how to get things done and I change my mind about the layout at the last minute (the spikes were supposed to go along the top..). I have a bunch of other projects that are waiting for me, but this has been too much fun..
