The 3 R's

6:10 AM

This quilt was made for a challenge in the "Art Quilts Around the World" group that I am a part of! For the other quilts from the group, please visit our blog.

We have a challenge every two months based on a theme. This time it was the 3R's - Reduce, Recycle, Reuse.
Here's my blog post for the same!!!

When the challenge was announced, I just loved it!!!

I began quilting with 'up'cycling! That is how it all started for me...

For this challenge, I was planning on making a selvedge background and then thread sketching on top of it!!!

Awesome plan wasn't it?

But I forgot something: how lazy I am!
So the selvedges were sewn together, because that was the easier part, and they sat on my table for about a month!!!

I had a lot of time! - I would tell myself.

Fast forward to 30th July! I am in panic mode! My quilt is not ready! And there's no way I am going to be able to do the thread painting in one day!

So I just decided to be late, again. I proceeded to clean my sewing room. That was when I found the markers I had bought from Bernina India. Thats the ones they use with their paintworks tool!

I knew exactly what I wanted to make!!! I then let my heart do the design and the hand do the drawings!!!

So here's my quilt! Finished in time!!!

I love the quirkiness and the 'fun'ness of the quilt! And I already see myself making many more!!!

I had made a quilt with strips of solids a while back. I had a lot of those leftover strips, between 2-6" wide. I cut up a few to make the super scrappy binding of the quilt!!!

Do you like it??
