Kawandi #2

After a flurry of scrap play and hand stitching over the past few days, I'm happy to share my finished Kawandi # 2.  

This small quilted project was such a joy to work on and I absolutely enjoyed every step of the process. I'm not normally a fan of (doing) improvisation. It's meant to be free and relaxing (or so I'm led to believe), but I find it way more stressful than following a pattern. This style of project can definitely be classed as improvisational as you don't really know how it's going to look until it's finished. That's kind of cool, don't you think?

This Kawandi is a good size for my side table. I think it looks really pretty with this rainbowy beaded lamp that I received for my birthday earlier in the year.

I had someone ask me on Instagram when I shared a progress photo, if I was doing a QAYG (Quilt As You Go) project. Thinking about it, it could possibly be classed as QAYG because with each stitch, we're actually quilting the project... as we go.

Thanks very much Kay. I really enjoyed making this and am itching to start another kawandi soon.

Thanks Fiona. That beaded lamp was a birthday gift from my sister in law and I really should move it nearer a power point so I can use it more often :)

I think it looks really nice the colors and the stitching.

I love the texture of the quilting! I'm just the opposite! I'd rather do improv than follow a pattern!

I love it and would like to do one ... do you need soft fabric like liberty or is 100% cotton okay?
