The last scrap quilt was so much fun why not make another out of the growing pile of strings. The inspiration for a string quilt struck when I saw Emily's quilt over at Em's Scrapbag.
We've seen a gazillion string quilts of every shape and size. How can I make this one my own, make it different, original, a one of a kind? Nothing lubricates the creative quilty gears like some mindless speed piecing strips of technicolor fabric.
Once the sewing began the ideas flowed out of my brain like the curse words out of my mouth when my expensive sewing machine broke earlier in the week.
(yep I'm still peeved)
One sweet idea after another until...I HAVE A NEW PLAN! Something I've not seen before. I've Googled, Binged, and YahOOOOO'ed and not one quilt with this idea. Now that doesn't mean it doesn't exist ....and I'm sure somebody with better knowledge or skills of searching will let me know if does.
So what's my plan you say?
Before I go getting too cocky and spouting off at the mouth, there's still oodles of design elements that need a little tweaking. So until then I'll show you what I should be working on but can't seem to come up with any ideas.
Oh yes, my nemesis....NOVELTY FABRIC! UGG! YUK! My sweet little grandson(Hunter) wants a Spidey quilt. Well guess what granny had in the stash? After hours of searching for some type of inspiration, I'm feeling inspired to toss it in the trash can, because you know 6 yr olds are very critical of quilt patterns...wink wink.
