This week is going to be "quilt week" at Clever Karen. Each day (or so) I'm going to show one of the quilts that I've made. Disclaimer: I am not an expert quilter. I'm mostly self taught. Don't look too closely - my points don't match and I usually do the quilting by machine and it doesn't always stay in the ditch and sometimes things aren't perfectly square. I am not a perfectionist when it comes to quilting!
What I do love is scrappy quilts with a mix of fabrics. I love combining the fabrics as if they were different colors of paint.
This quilt is based on a square I saw on TV on Simply Quilts. I can't remember the name of the square and I'm too lazy right now to go out on the internet and research it - maybe someone reading this can help me out. I like the kinda op art pinwheel effect that it gives when you stare at it. And I love buttons, plus they cover up the poor matching I have on my corners.
Stay tuned - more quilts will be coming!
