A group blog for working on UnRuly Quilting projects and most especially UnRuly Letters. What is UnRuly? Liberated, wonky, improvisational, mis-matched, points cut off FUN.

An Introduction :: Sunshine and Lemonade

Hi all!

I'm Jenny from Crafty Canary's Squawk, baby!  I'm a new member to this blog; and thought I'd put out a quick introduction of myself and a recent piece.  I've been a fan of Gwen Marston for a while and found Tonya's work by googling "liberated quilting" back in 2006 or earlier.  Even with being liberated, this was my first attempt at words in quilts.  Total love.

For 2011, I picked the word calm as the word I want to work on through my life and personality.  I picked golden yellow tones for this quilt to challenge myself with a monochromatic scheme.  Sunshine and Lemonade is a quilt that glows warm like taking a nap in the afternoon on a long summer day. 

The quilt is really not so slanty.  I was standing on the sofa trying to get a good picture.

I've got some border town houses to make soon!

So pretty and soft. I love the font you used for "Calm" it looks vintage(1880-1900). ADORE ;0)

This is a beauty! Very soothing and soft, and great choice of words. They're good ones to remember. Your letters look great! Love your T in 'still'.
