Almost finished....

Before I show you this, I will tell you that the pieces were all cut free-hand with the rotary cutter.  The sides and borders are not supposed to be straight, though I did not have the nerve to cut them with the curve I would have liked.
This was an experiment from start to finish.  Ricky Tims showed how to make this 'flower' on Simply Quilts a long time ago.  Most of you have probably never heard of Ricky Tims...he is a well known quilter and teacher.  To see some his work I just googled his name and clicked on images....here.
I played with quilting....I guess you could say I was doodling with my needle instead of an ink pen.
I like it better in person than in these pics...



I still have to do something to finish the edges and then it is done...

Long ago...

Long ago, when I was in school...high school....when the teachers were talking I would sit and doodle as I listened them.


 Now this one has this on one side...it is unfinished.  If it had been finished it would have been full.



This is the other side...it is finished.

I have always thought I should try quilting something similar to these....they also make me think of crazy quilts.
