My share: something subdued, something normal. This was one of my early attempts at coming up with my own design. The irresistible pull into the wacky world of Jay McCarroll drew me in with the fabric. The fabric line is 'Germania', of which I had pieces of every color, but stayed blues for this little baby!
I couldn't tell you the size of the blocks, accent blocks or even the size of the quilt. I didn't exactly keep good records back then. I do know the colors of the solid squares were pulled from the fabric. I made five blocks in each print and used five different solids. That's about all I remember!
Oh, and the fact that I played with the border and added a totally standout yellow for the binding. That was 'crazy train' thinking!
Pile of doneness. I do love the funky print with the blue splats and red! It's called 'Nerggle City'...how can you not love that?!
Back then, I didn't do much in the way of killer cool quilting. Dense quilting never crossed my mind, crazy wild quilting was germinating in my brain but hadn't quite developed. This was as crazy as it got back then.
I enjoy looking back on my early quilts. The long and windy road of what works and what doesn't, design decisions, fabric choices...it's has been a lot like Mr. Toads Wild Ride! You never want to get off!
