I am in love with everything about this quilt!
My Grandma taught me how my Great Grandmother would use up her leftover bits of fabric by crazy piecing them onto squares of newspaper and then sewing the squares together to make a quilt. I had used this informal method of paper/ string piecing before and really loved the results. It always comes out so colorful and scrappy!
I feel like this pattern (made by Freshly Pieced) took that idea to the next level by adding some structure to the crazy. The definite placement of colors and the varied block heights combine to create a really dramatic visual.
If you would like to make this exact quilt, there are a limited number of kits available at Honey Bee Quilt Store in Austin, Tx (where I work). Just call (512)257-1269.
The fabric is from Urban Chick's line "Nomad" and the pattern is "Gridlock" by Freshly Pieced.
