dragon teeth



Karla Alexander's second book, Stack a New Deck, is excellent for giving me ideas.

I made this quilt with humble materials, lots of thrift store shirts, with a few fabulous florals added.
Very primative looking. Kind of in the ugly quilt category, but I love it.

I like it too - I have this book but haven't really done anything from it. Is this a pattern from the book or did you just take the idea of stacking and slashing and come up with your own?

I don't think it's ugly at all. Heck, I like it very much and no triangle edges to match up! I saved a pic for later in case I need a fun quick quilt to make. I really like your quilts.

Oh I love it! I"ll have to look for that book, I don't know it! All it takes is one great quilt for me to look for it. I like it!

Fun!! Not Ugly! Loved the Easter colored quilts. And the chocolate pudding!! My grandma used to make that for me- I can still see her stirring it with a big spoon. The recipe looks about the same. I think she added a T. of butter. Chocolate... What's not to like?

I love the dragon teeth quilt! What a great way to make a fun quilt and use up lots of odd fabrics, somehow they all work wonderfully together!

I like your quilt too :-) The stack and cut method is so clever !
