A quilt with buttons

Lately I have been drawn to quilts that don’t fit into a specific pattern.   They aren’t as impressive as the intricately pieced quilts but something about them really draws me in.

I recently purchased a quilt top from eBay that I really find interesting

I looks like it was made up of recycled clothing.  I can see old seam lines in the fabrics

I think the overall design is very pleasing.  I like the colors and the rather modern feel.

Teddy was taking a nap….but he came to see what I was doing…

here he is with bed face.

the simple design calls for simple quilting…I will hand quilt this in a random pattern (unless I change my mind with is NOT uncommon)

For now it will be added to the pile of tops that need to be cataloged and stored

There is no chance I will ever run out of quilts to work on!!

I am also in the drafting stage for a small whole cloth quilt….It is hard to see the lines in the pictures but I will post about it when I get the design set.

I am also adding new pictures to the Timquilts Facebook page.  I am always fascinated by quilt patterns so I am starting a series of them and adding to the Facebook page …here is a sample
