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.

Oh My Stars!!



Here's where I'm up to with my Liberated Amish quilt....

It's pretty busy for an Amish quilt, so I might have to ponder more about the Amish challenge and see if I can come up with another quilt. But as scrappy liberated star quilts go I'm really happy with it.
At the moment it's 50 x 60 inches. I'm not sure whether I'll add borders or just leave it as is. I don't want to go too much wider because I've got a wall space for it. Maybe a border along one side and the bottom? I did wonder about piecing the year along the bottom or the words "Happy Star". I'll let it stew a while longer on my design wall and see how it goes.

Happy UnRuly Quilting to everyone!!
