Forget the debate about "is it a quilt if it isn't quilted?". All the quilts I'd seen until I was 20 something were tied. They were used loved washed and mended. What more could I want?
The low volume large size crazy blocks were made in 2011. The inspiration was from Victoria Findlay Wolf who at that time was doing lots of creative stuff with what she dubbed " made fabric." I must say the process way a great way to use up scraps and a non stress process. I enjoyed the exploration but never quite made a low volume quilt.
Until now these 12" blocks are perfect for a 2 sided quilt.
The flip side is more like the front and it ticks two boxes on the quilting list.
I have been able to incorporate lots of orphan blocks (some mine like the 3 at the top) . The remainde were from unknown sources, remainders from a friends clear out and the bottom row are blocks I stitched from gifted miss cut parts.
ROW BY ROW
The lay out is another popular way to construct a sampler quilt. The format proved a touch of working out a puzzle to another batch of blocks.
Now to start tying the quilt.
