It all started when I found this house print at Ikea. I think it's so sweet, and wanted to turn it into something special for the newlyweds.
I learned a lot working on this, and it isn't perfect, but I am really happy with the result of my efforts. I will be trying quilts again for sure. Finishing this also counts as number 8, on my 30 before 30 list.
I didn't use a pattern for this, but after I made plans for my design I realized that it is very similar to the quilt in Amy Karol's book Bend the Rules Sewing. I kinda winged it—cutting the strips and arranging them on the floor till I found a combination that I liked. I think this method would make a traditional quilter's head explode. That is how I work in general, feeling it out as I ago. Maybe it is a designer thing?
