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.

Another one for the tourists. Starfish Beach is a favorite excursion.

Another little quilt to sell (hopefully!) to tourists in our islands.

More Legomania

I finally got a chance to work on the legos this afternoon. I now have 16 blocks, aiming for about 20-24 I guess.

I recently put them up on the wall and auditioned some possible arrangements. I think this one is in the lead:with some strips between the blocks, Chinese Coin style. But I also kind of liked this one...

where the Legos are a border. Not sure what goes in the middle - possibly some big weird and wonky string star? Or some big crazy applique? Maybe that will be #2 in the series.

I was also amusing myself by taking note of some of the strange combinations of novelty fabrics that just happened to fall next to each other. My favorite - which might turn out to be the title of the quilt - was Brooklyn Tomato. Some of the other good ones were Spiderman Cupcake and Subway Robot...sort of like the Unruly version of Mad Libs!

Lots of photos

I've been too busy to post here, but here's what has been going on Chez Nous.

Apologies if you read my blog and have already seen these.

First Brick Building (WiP name). Currently about 50" by 47" and still growing.

Brick Building

Next up - Alex revisited. I made this in March for DD's birthday. There was a hiccup on the binding so I unpicked it , cut the bat and backing back and started again. A lot better.

Happy Birthday Alex

Another quilt for DD. Still a Wip. The sewing machine chewed up the bottom row and there is already a split seam. Yet more unpicking, add a bit more white between the bottom 2 rows and then white borders. Thinking about a black binding, but will probably go for white.

Music is Magic
Thanks for reading.

After much "education" from Clare in France, I am at last able to post here -- whoo hoo! I'm a Full-Blooded Liberated Quilter, love anything Gwen, Freddy, MaryLou, Tonya.... Just don't make me use a pattern and I'm a happy quilter. Here is a little piece I've just finished depicting houses in our funky Caribbean Island town. Mary in Panama

I want to add words.
What they will be hasn't been decided yet.
