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 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"
