A train-crash of a quilt finished

randomicity uncroppedI call this quilt Randomicity, because everything about it was freehand and at random, made from strips fished out of the scrap box at my local quilt shop, assembled in random order then cut into slices and re-assembled any old how. My machine quilting is pretty bad, so it seemed appropriate to quilt it by machine, in roughly placed all-over triangles.  It was finished  at 11pm last night, so  the photograph was taken when it was almost dark, which is probably a good thing!

I can’t believe it, but the ‘new’ laptop now refuses to accept the password that I have been using for years, so this post comes to you from the old one which is full of bugs, doesn’t have Word and is slower than a constipated tortoise!  My Splendid Young Man doesn’t come back from holiday until the day before I go to UK, and in any case I daren’t subject Jock yet again to hanging around for hours in the computer shop while the other man ‘tries’ to fix it.  So lappy will go to England with me and be taken  back to PC World where it was bought just over a year ago.

Have a happy Saturday, and don’t forget to look for more 6-worders over at Cate’s place.

  1. I love each and every one of your quilts. My favourite is the one you made for Spud but he refuses to hand it over. It’s been to university and back and will attend until the end 😦

  2. Not only is your quilt a piece of art, it is also so peace inducing. A very tranquil color and flow.

  3. I like the quilt and the randomness of the design. I’m so tired of things that have to be PERFECT. You made me laugh here. Your humor is PERFECT, just my style. Sorry to hear about the laptop. It’s called built in obsolescence. They make them so you have to buy an new one every year or two. Yet, we can’t be without them. I couldn’t put mine in for repairs. I’d probably stop breathing. 🙂

    You, my dear, are most creative, both in the quilt and the constipated tortoise department! 😉

    I have to say I think it looks pretty good, at this angle at least. I like the colours and the way the lighter green sweeps through it.
    I do hate IT!

    Well, I was going to ask for some close up shots of your pretty quilt, but in the circumstances… maybe not? 🙂 🙂 Nothing more frustrating than IT, Viv!
    The good news- coming to England soon to see Sally?
