Angry Chicken

Angry_chicken_cheater_quiltI’m sure a lot of you are already familiar with the tremendously talented Amy Karol over at Angry Chicken.  She’s the author of one of my favorite sewing books in recent memory, Bend-the-Rules Sewing, a very approachable, friendly book for those of you who might still be sewing shy.  She posted yesterday about a cheater (aka, whole cloth, no piecing necessary) quilt that we printed the fabric for, and I was totally blown away with the cleverness of this idea.  I’ve certainly seen cheater fabrics before, but always found the designs uninspiring and, frankly, too fuddy-duddy to my eye.  Amy’s design takes this old time-saving method of making a quilt and makes it fresh, modern, and very appealing indeed. 

Thanks to my (lamentably blog-less!) friend, Tammy, for the alert on this amazing project!
