I've got a fun quilt to share with you today. Tea for Two by Laura Caudle
Laura really cracks me up. This is how she describes the making of this quilt:
I have been a fan of your quilts for a while, and have longed to make a quilt with your liberated letters but have been intimidated. (I come from a long line of German, Austrian and uptight British ancestors. I even plant flowers in rows. Rows! Very martial.) Anyway, I decided to shake off the shackles of genetics and just go for it. I took a paper piecing class (and as part of my anti-uptightness (not a word, I know, but it fits) therapy I even did wonky teacups. And then I was struck with a crazy bug and designed my own border of stacked saucers - they are wonky, too. And THEN I let go and just did some liberated letters. It was exciting! It was freeing! It was scary! And I didn't do too well! But darnit - it was fun and I'm going to do it again!
Whew. I need to go organize my pantry by food type, color and size now or I'm going to have an aneurism.
Thank you for inspiring a little crazy freedom. Following is a picture of my nuttiness - not yet complete, because I have to go buy batting - hanging in its future spot.
