My first attempt at patchwork

This was a LOT of fun to make.

Thanks! =)

Wow, that is really neat! I love how the pattern looks random, but the result somehow looks carefully planned. It is beautiful.

How did you find time to do this???

Elena said...

In bits and snatches. =)

I have my sewing machine permanently set up in our room, and whenever I need a break, I duck back there, and it takes me about one minute to cut out and add on another piece.

And I emerge refreshed and invigorated. It's great!

I haven't heard of anybody doing "crazy quilt" type piecing within a limited color scheme, but since it doesn't require a highly organized overall plan, it's really easy to start and stop with. In fact, it's actually easier when I start and stop, because I come with a fresh eye for every piece, and so I don't end up repeating the same angles senselessly.
