Quilty goodness

I have tried to quilt before.  It didn't go well.  I think my thoughts about quilting were more about precision and making all seams align...you know, that is what good quilters do, right?  Not anymore.... I have been LIBERATED.  I don't want to go burn my bra or anything but the principles are loosey goosey and that is a nice change.  Don't get me wrong, I still like things to match up.  It's hard to un-learn what has been ingrained for so long about sewing.  I started Mary's class Design Your Own Modern Quilt at Sew to Speak and last night was the first class.  I made this wonky star:

and this wonky log cabin block:

It was fun.  Now I am going to plan my official quilt that we will make in class.  I can't wait!

Yay! It will be wonderful - I know! Anyone as loosey goosey as you can't help but make a winning liberated quilt :)
