Out Of My Comfort Zone

I have joined a second bee, The Bumbling Honeys.

For my first block in this group the lovely Jo of asked for a blue block, so far so good.  Please use solids or small scale prints, as many re-purposed as possible, maybe denim or shirts.  Getting better and better by the minute, an opportunity to use all those jeans I've been hoarding collecting for the last few years.  Can it be Wonky and Improv.  Screeches to a halt.  Wonky? Improv?  Now the thing is Wonky and Imrov has to be devil may care, not I've buggered this up and now I've sewn it together.  Which leaves one in the situation of planned spontaneity, neither of which words go together in my book.  Planned or buggered, that's how I roll.

Still, I had a punt:

I quite like it.  I may do some more and make some cushions!


  1. well done ... it is so hard to do something like this which is SOOOOOOOO different from what you normally sew xx

  2. It looks great. There is this really weird thing that if I try and be intentionally wonky I get it straighter than the non wonky stuff!

  3. I understand the planned spontaneity problem! I think your punt turned out brilliantly:-)

  4. It's good. I can't even manage a planned quilt. So I'm impressed.

  5. Great result, however you got there. That's the great thing: anything goes!! Just popped in to say hello, following from Lily's Quilts.
