It's a Flimsy!

Waste Not Want Not is now a flimsy!! (48" x 68")

I wish the photo did a better job of showing the deep, wonderful purple of the 6" outer border ~ maybe once I take it outside in the sunshine the true colors will photograph. Unlike my first LAGT project (No Words Needed), this one has words on the front. (photo will enlarge)

Okay, I confess, I did use fusible and machine applique instead of free-piecing (I've been home with a horrible cold/ear infection & my brain just couldn't handle free-pieced letters).

I'm pretty sure Waste Not Want Not will end up with Baptist Fan quilting (I'd love to do freehand fans, but my wrist/thumb will not tolerate that kind of handwork) and the binding will be red. Woo Hoo!

There is another liberated log cabin quilt in the works, but it will not be done by June. Once No Words Needed and Waste Not Want Not come back quilted from Chris and I get the bindings done, I'll share "finished" photos.

Wouldn't it be awesome to have all the amazing quilts from this challenge in one place ~ that would be visually incredible! There are so many amazing quilters participating in this challenge . . .

fused? can you hear me crying from over here? okay, okay, it's a wonderful quilt nevertheless. I DO wish I could see these together. I've thought of it myself, but honestly have no idea how to go about it...

it's lovely. could we not develop a Flickr photo sharing site for finished tops and/or quilts? we could link it to the blog. with Kristen bragging about this challenge all over the place, we've got to show our stuff! then again, you could all send your quilts to me and I'll find an exhibit space for them and invite you all up to Winnipeg mid-summer and we could have a really liberated Amishfest!

Before I read the post I saw the photos and thought "how did she manage to free piece letters like that?" Cheat! LOL

I like the idea of a Flickr site. What do you think Ton?

an update for everybody: Clare is setting up a Flickr site for us. Woohoo!
