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.

Liberated top

I finished a top, it's definitely unruly and it has letter's included, so I thought I post it here too :-)

Here is the word I made for Carol (Giraffe Dreams) for her birthday quilt.  I'm a little late, but she assures me I'm not too late!  Whew!  

I'm not entirely pleased with the C or the R, both of which could be a little larger.  I started with those two letters instead of the E or A, which was probably where my problem happened, but all in all, I'm happy with this.  As long as Carol is happy, I'm happy!

Hey Jude

This I Spy quilt has been sent to a little Australian friend called Jude. If you look closely you can see a few Beatles scraps.

My Words So Far

I thought you'd like to see the words I have so far. I'm pretty sure this is all of them. I want to make a few more, then start playing with design. I love all my words! -- carol e.

An Unruly Challenge

Gee, am I ever thankful for Tonya's influence!  A year ago our local art quilt group began a 2-gallon-bag challenge.  I got the most awful assortment of fabric and trims!  BUT .... I gave myself a big slap in the face and said "that's what challenges are all about"!

The largest single piece of fabric in the bag was a pre-printed Jo-Ann's skirt panel with a tie-dyed color scheme.  Being a quilt shop owner and used to handling VERY NICE fabrics, I hated that panel.  There were also assorted scraps, trims, a needle felted flower (that didn't make it into the final project) and some sewn and stuffed shapes.  I felt like I was recycling, so that is the direction I took.
The quilts will be given to the person who originally supplied the bag.  A provision of the challenge was that we could also make a quilt for ourselves to keep from the same fabrics.  Here is my little piece (thank you, Jan Mullen).
Recycle Quilt:  30" x 22"
Bird Quilt:  11" x 14"
