It has been a few weeks since my last post, but I wanted to share a finish. They have been few and far between lately.
I had high hopes when I took this wonky block class from a wonderful teacher, Jean Brenner.
Needless to say, I earned a lot about color and organizing for chain piecing complicated blocks, but the most significant thing that I learned was that I do not like wonky piecing. I have always prided myself for the relaxed quilting style that I have. One of my favorite phrases is "Quilting is so forgiving"' and it is. But I realized while trying to put these blocks together that I like the math and seams that intersect. I like the precision of traditional piecing and there was not much of that going on in this quilt. It took me a really long time to get it done. But it is finally finished.
I have named it "Enough Already!" As I have had enough wonky piecing to last me a lifetime. I love the colors and the way it turned out, but not enough to repeat the experience. Well on to the next quilt.
