Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Thursday 19 July 2012

Scrappy goodness quilt went home.

Way back in April, Charlene brought me 3 quilts to do, and then said she was not in any hurry for them. I took her literally, and have been doing other quilts that people were in a hurry for. But, it has been long enough, and I've decided it is time to get them done before they grow roots and become permanent fixtures in my sewing room. And I'm starting to feel guilty that I've had them this long, even though she did say not to hurry.This quilt is full of wonderful scrappy goodness. It makes me happy just looking at it. I really had no clear idea of what I was going to do on it. Charlene's guidelines were "something simple, like a meander, or something". I'm not a big fan of doing the basic puzzle meander. It is too over worked and done way too often. Once I had this quilt loaded, it told me what it wanted. It said it wanted to have loops going into each individual square, so that's what I did.
Fast, simple, easy and fun. And best of all, she liked it. Now, to come up with an idea for the next one. Hmmmmmm.......


  1. I like the round movement with the squares. Nice job from both of you.

  2. One of my all time favorite designs to quilt...so fun!

  3. Great quilting idea - I will have to borrow it!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
