No Planning -- just Chaos

 No concept, just adding scraps. Maybe some day I will start planning.
I've come to using quilts as my favorite bed cover in hot summer nights and my favourite extra cover in cold winter nights.
The quilt I created before this one contains a lot of quilting which makes it very stiff. It can be shaped into a tunnel without collapsing. I started another, using the korak technique, using my husband's discarded shirt as a grid to do the piecing on. Still, everything looks skewed; seems to be a genetic disorder of mine. I will not quilt this one more than necessary, just so much that I can attach the reverse, to get a lighter and more flexible piece this time. But I may as well end up with a crib quilt for my 1-year-old grandnephew.

It looks happy ! Skewed ? don't pay attention to it Eva. If you're not the person to use ruler and rollerblade .... keep it that way ;-)

love the chaos....much better than planned. it's wonderful. i did my korak with silk so it was very soft, but i just did a small piece that i stitched onto a pillow.

I could see this everywhere in the world and I would know that you created these pretty and colorful patches - how wonderful you returned to it - take some scraps, needle and yarn to your vacation!
Oh yes the chaos, me too, I too love it - I so which I could be "chaotic" too and more spontaneous, with me everything has to be "planned" - uff terrible! :-)
