Oops – Fun and Done trial


I’ve been researching a quilt-as-you-go method called Fun and Done.  Like it.  I don’t have the tool, which is a set of templates, a square that nests in a frame, but have managed  a reasonable facsimile with just a ruler. I really feel the best way to learn something is to do it, so I had a rummage in my scraps and came up with this combo:

I pinned a quilt on Pinterest the other day, saying how I love B&W and brights so this fits perfectly. I won’t say too much about it because I don’t know if a certain someone might be reading.  I WILL say that the backing is pink flannel (which is why it’s fraying a bit) and that I only had a VERY limited amount of the B&W swirl and the tiny green dotty material.  My design choices were dictated my the amounts. I haven’t yet sewn down the backing (just folded over and pinned) but I am liking it so far.  I def. learned a few things even from making the first block.

I have another row almost ready to add so the overall pattern will be more like this:

but I may play around with the placement before I decide finally.

The turnaround time on this is VERY FAST.  I’ll share more when it’s done.

It’s so bright and cheerful it makes me smile….

  1. I love it!! It’s very bright and cheery!

  2. Your quilt looks lovely. I’m looking forward to seeing how it goes. Tfs,

  3. It’s lovely and striking! I am certain that it will be well received!

  4. Bright cheerful and lovely. Funnily enough I was out at a craft shop yesterday, popped in to the fabric shop next door and came out with five sets of fabric. They are approx 20in by 20 and one is very, very bright butterflies on a black background – intention is to cut them out and applique(?) them into my altered book. Don’t know why I got the other 4 pieces for but I just had to have them.

    • I’ve done this – it works great if you iron on some interfacing then cut it out. The interfacing holds all the threads so it doesn’t fray. No need to applique with needle and thread that way but you still get the look of the fabric. I had a post about this some time ago. I’ll have to see if I can find it 🙂
