an unintentional addition

may become a permanent one. Loosely intended to be a modern version of a crazy quilt, each improvisational square was created using a stitch and flip foundation piecing technique. I used the brightest colors in my stash and then embellished the top with beads. A doily ended up on top of it when I was moving some projects around, and I'm considering incorporating it.

I think the doily and beads really make the quilt "pop." I love it.

Great little piece, and I like the doily!

Reminds me of being really frustrated on one quilt. I was working from two identical photos, one a 4x6", the other an 8x10". I threw the small one down in frustration, and fixed all of my issues.

Some things are just meant to be...
