This is going to be a lap quilt just for me, just because. I saw a handful of Nest fat quarters at my local quilt shop and snapped them up in an attempt to convince the owner that there are at least a few of her customers who actually like and seek out contemporary prints. Mostly she stocks Moda florals, which are soft and muted and lovely and not at all my cup of caffeine-free Diet Pepsi.
I took the project to an evening quilting event the shop hosted and worked on my blocks there. Polite astonishment ensued: "You mean you're not using a pattern?" "You just...cut it?" "Wow, those colors!" "Ohhhh. [Silence, not especially approving.]"
It's loud, it's scrappy-looking, it's spontaneous, and I love it. Next step: fussy-cutting a whole flock of Tula's birds and arranging the whole glorious mess into something resembling coherence.
