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.

For the Birds

I made some more birds.

And then I made birds and words.

Then I tried out birds with selvages.

So, there will be at least one more avian post in the future!

Scrappy Table Runner

I started making blocks out of skinny scraps and it turned into this table runner.

My Birthday Verbs

I have not forgotten my birthday quilt in which many of you were kind enough to participate. The quilt is not yet put together, but I am still working on making some words and will soon attempt to make it into a top. Here is what I laid out while working on more words at a recent retreat:
Some day this is going to be a gorgeous quilt! --carol E.

I Forgot - this is a Group!

I was thinking that this blog owner hadn't posted much lately, and then remembered this is a GROUP blog, and I am one of its authors! Duh! Some of you may have seen this at my blog, but I thought I'd post it here, too. It's a house block I made with a zipper in it. And inside the house is a giraffe!
I've been having fun with zippers lately. This is one of many zipper projects that I've been playing with for the last month or so. Carol E.

Unruly Birds

Hello out there!

It's been a long time since anyone has posted here.
Aren't you feeling very unruly?

Here's a little quilt (27" x 40") that I finished this week.  I found the "HOW TO" about the birds in a fun book called Hot Flashes of Inspiration by Kandi Kelderman and Kim Schissel.

Here's a close-up of one of the blocks.  I quilted the whole thing side to side with straight lines about 1/2 inch apart.  It took a while, but gave the quilt a neat texture and feel.
