My daughter is home from college for a few weeks and has been working on her crazy log cabin quilt in the studio recently. She is adding squares to the pile I had made earlier this year.
Here is a jumble of the wonderful colors she has been working with. Some of the fabrics are from favorite old pieces of clothing, like my aqua plaid shorts on the left. We even have some scraps of things I sewed her when she was a little girl!
If you have been following this blog for a little while, then you have seen a posting on how to do crazy log cabin quilting. Just click on the title of this post for more instructions.
I asked her how she picked the sequence of colors, and she said she was using a balance of cool and warm colors.
I love her lively color work, and the proportions of the shapes she is using. I also like the way the square in the middle is off-center. I think the finished quilt is going to have energy and movement. We are going to back it with minky, do a combination of hand and machine sewing, and try to finish it before she goes back to school to do research this summer!
I love having my daughter in the studio with me. How very, very lucky I am!
