A Rose By Any Other Name....
Thanks to Block Lotto, I recently discovered the creative fun of "liberated" quilting. Some call it "rule-breaking" quilting. In this type of quilting there is no exact pattern, but rather an idea of how you are going to sew your pieces together. It's fun, but also challenging. It's not so easy to throw pieces together.I don't want to end up with a mish-mash, but rather a well-balanced design. I am definitely enjoying the process though.
These are two of my "roses" for the August Block Lotto. As those of you who know me, you'll figure I'm not perfectly satisfied with them. In fact, I have reworked these blocks a couple of times, but I think they are okay. I definitely will attempt some more. I think I get a better idea of how to arrange the pieces to make it work with each rose I do.
