Asymmetrical Quilting

25 Nov

 I ran across this quilt in a magazine the other day and I thought it was really fun.  I love the asymmetry of all the blocks and the use of color looks very haphazard but based on most of the quilters I know, I’m sure it was very intentional.

My mother helped me with a quilting project last year for my friend, Jessica’s son.  We had Jess’ friends and family send in a swatch of fabric which my mother and I subsequently made into a baby quilt.  I was thinking that the asymmetrical quilt would have been a fun twist on the project — lots of parts and pieces of fabric from special people.  But I also love the way our final quilt turned out and it was nice and simple!
