AAQI Finish

I added the alphabet beads to the crazy lady quilt.  I need a better title than that!

I finished another UFO for AAQI.  I made the top a few years ago.  I love the quilts by Caryl Bryer Fallert.  If you don't know who she is check her out here

Now my little quilt looks nothing like a Fallert quilt, but hers were the inspiration for it.  I wanted to make something that had movement and was pieced.  So I made a paper pieced pattern and this was the result:

The center of mine is a little "bunched".  It's not as smooth as I had wanted, but it looks OK.  I still hate curves, inset pieces, and flying geese!   It was a learning experiences.

Happy Quilting

What a neat quilt! Be a learning piece or not your colors, quilting, and the movement really set this quilt apart from the crowd.
