"one sexy hot mess" or the quilt that happened this weekend

So. Friday I was putting off basting a quilt and wanted to start a quilt that has been bumbling about in my head. It wasn’t working. And I was getting frustrated so I wandered away from both and started some crumb/improv style scrap blocks. Honestly. I loved making these blocks. No rulers until the final 12.5" trim

Finished up the quilting and binding on it this afternoon. The title is how a friend referred to the process shots. It’s as good a name as any.

And some close ups of some of my favorite bits

That is a fabric collector’s dream quilt…a bit of every fabric in every used for a project! It must bring up happy memories of sewing…

Such a huge, huge mix of fabrics…like an eye spy for adults!

This actually has the last bit of scrap from my first quilt. And the last bit of a lightning sky storm print. Sad to see them gone. :joy:

This is absolutely amazingly gorgeous! What a cool quilt!!! Almost makes me want to sew. I love quilts but HATE being so precise with sewing. Improv seems way better. :slight_smile:
