Completed Fungly Sampler Quilt


Well, here it is, the fungly quilt is finished. It came out to be a good size, about 50 by 90 inches, more or less. And totally ridiculous. But you know, I got to like it, and it's going to make a nice nap quilt. And thanks to Tonya (Lazy Gal blog) for encouraging me to make it. I don't think I'll ever make a "normal" quilt again. And I used up a lot of fabrics and bits and pieces that have been in my boxes for years and years. Some of those blocks used in the border were cut with a scissors on pencil marks--before I even used a rotary cutter. Meanwhile, I'm on overload with projects. I ordered yarn, books, and so forth. And everything has arrived. I'm making a bunch of stuff. Socks, vests, a sweater, and of course I'm hand quilting that tree wall hanging. So I just have to try to keep completing things as soon I can.

I love it, as I have loved every single Fungly quilt I have seen on the blogs. I guess it goes to show that there are really no ugly fabrics.

That is one of the prettiest Fungly quilts I have ever saw. Great size for covering up when being lazy on the couch.

I find these are the quilts that the kids always reach for to snuggle under when they are watching a movie...
great finish!

Hi Roz, thanks for letting me know about your bits and pieces and fungly blocks! All together they make a wonderful, happy, "silly without a reason but who needs one" quilt. So nice to read that your DD loves it and it has a new happy home! Would you mind if I shared it on the Orphan Train blog, along with your words and linked it back to you??? We're managing to get a few younger quilters to venture into that "let it fly" area *VBS* Hugs, Finn

I've been working on quilting my Wonky Trees today - it is fun to work on liberated quilts isn't it? Your sampler turned out great - it's unique which I like.

I'm also on overload when it comes to projects - I ordered stuff for a locker hook rug, a magazine with a knit shawl, I started but haven't finished a scarf, and that doesn't count all my quilting and piecing projects.
