Down the rabbit hole

June 21, 2010

This week’s project went off in a completely unexpected direction – kind of like Alice down the rabbit hole. Last week I had mentioned a number of projects I was considering, but the arrival of some new patterns from Carolina Patchworks was too tempting. I took Off Your Rocker and a bundle of spring solids from Robert Kaufman, and here’s what happened:

Off Your Rocker

This wacky log cabin quilt was so much fun to put together! Emily Cier’s instructions were wonderfully clear, and it went together without a hitch (under 12 hours I think). 

It reminds me of the illustrations in a Dr. Seuss book, but Emily thinks it has an Alice in Wonderland look about it. Either way, it’s guaranteed to brighten your day. The quilting might be a challenge – I will have to think on that a bit.

And speaking of Wonderland, the whole family is off to Canada’s Wonderland later this week for an end of school trip. I’m giving up quilting for rollercoasters for a few days. I won’t have a project done for next week, but will try to have something ready to show you after that. TTFN!

    I love it! I may do the same for my next baby quilt.

    We’re going to CA in Nov. to visit our “kids” and see our new grandson. This would be perfect for him. Thanks for the inspiration (I wanted something fast!!)and have a great time in Canada :)
