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.
