After my Mother surprised me with a crazy quilt she made for me for Christmas last year (see below), I've been interested in learning to quilt. I took a one day class earlier this year and learned a little about "strip quilting," starting on a "boulliabaisse" style quilt (shown below on my work area) with a hodge podge of fabrics, including non-traditional (ie non-cotton) types such as rayons, "marquis de suede," etc.

A year later, I finally finished my first quilt, with a boulliabase pattern, shown below. Several wall hangings came out of the process, as I learned to make even squares!

This last square was done for the contra dance weekend coming up in Atlanta, made with scraps from the above, laid out in pinwheels, surrounded by music fabric (which I dyed)
