Houston, We Have Funky Ladies
October 18, 2010 § 10 Comments
These blocks above are for my Row 10 quilting bee on Flickr. This is my row for my month. I’m making a row of Funky Ladies. They are dear friends.
I asked everyone to work in a predominately grey & red palette and choose a good 4-letter word. (There are good ones, you know. Even though the bad ones get all the attention.) And then they could fill up the rest of the row with blocks related to their word. Here are the rows so far. In addition to mine, there are only a couple more rows missing and then I can sew all the rows together. My word is going to be “give”.
This has been such a fun project! I have learned SO much! Before joining this group, I wasn’t very good at the Liberated style of quilt making. I still feel like I’m wasting a ton of fabric when I make these liberated blocks. But it is getting easier. And it has given me a chance to work in color palettes that I wouldn’t ordinarily choose for myself. A big Thank You to all of the Row 10 ladies!
On another note, my mom and I decided at the last minute to attend the Houston Quilt Show the week after Quilt Market. Is anybody else going? Want to meet up for a quick hello? Send me an email if you are interested.
