Impromptu Maddering...

The other day after showing the madder humble little doll quilt, I felt the urge to make it!! Instead I worked on the medallion, getting most of the border machine appliqued.
Today I could resist no longer!! Want to join in?  This afternoon I played with Electric Quit and pulled some madder/red/brown from my stash.
Here's the little quilt again..take a look and pull some fabrics and I'll be back tomorrow with the block instructions.

I was not contacted by Jacky or Linda so I've drawn new names for the Elm Creek pins.

Deb- Loves to Quilt 2
and
Fiesta-Fiesta Quilting

are the new winners. Congratulations!
Please send me your email address and I'll get them in the mail.

  3. I have a "no-sew" week due to other responsibilities, but I will certainly catch up later! I am laughing at myself as I look closely at the quilt, asking myself, "Will you really be able to copy this, doing things that look like mistakes and just leaving it that way?" *LOL* Someone here needs to loosen up. : )

  6. Goodness Lori! I think this little quilt will be a very nice sister quilt to Abundance ... maybe more of a tanned sister. LOL!! You bet I'm in. Did you mention applique border in your medallion QAL? I'm shivering ...

  13. I'm with Brandie here...what's a madder? Maybe you could do a blog post on colors. Like, what is turkey red? poison green? Etc. Food for thought anyway!

  16. I love th e blue/gray pieces in this little quilt... I'd have never thought of that, but it's the perfect accent to the madders. I have collected quite a few Madder reds and browns and have been thinking of finally doing something with them. Thanks for the inspiration , once again!

  18. Love madder prints!
    Your title "impromptu maddering" reminds me of a line from Mrs Doubtfire where she/he pegged some obnoxious guy in the head with an orange and swore it was a "drive by fruiting"
    Maybe I'll have to join in with a "drive by maddering"!!
    k

    PS Brandie...Madder prints come a dye process using the madder root resulting in reddish browns. Different colour variations from copper to almost black come from different mordants used in the dye process.
