Funky Junk by Renee Tallman, 2014

This quilt started as a turquoise pieced top that I hated. I cut it up and sewed it back together seven times and took it out of the garbage at least twice. In the course of this quilt's life, it has been cut down from a 60" square, appliqued, un-appliqued, has had white borders, and has had pieced borders. This final layout was inspired by a quilt I saw at a show about 20 years ago. I don't know the name of that quilt's maker, but I never forgot her giant Drunkard's Path blocks and large-stitch quilting. I've decided that it is now finally acceptable and I quite like it.
