I am one of six European ladies that have joined the Rakish Needle Round Robin this year. This quilt was started by Ileana in Great Britain (crazy house block) and fantastic additions were made by Katrin in Germany.
Ileana wants a quilt "Freddy Moran style" (look it up), that is quite "crazy". I did some research on her style, and discovered that (almost) anything is allowed. Just add some white and black to let the eyes rest a bit in between the color explosions!
When attaching my row to the original one the combined piece looks like this. The cockatoo and the flower on blue background are patterns from the book. The rest of the blocks are improvised.
A house needs a rose garden, and two roses made in crazy log cabin style are on the far right. I had to add a cat to the picture, and hung a crazy log cabin style "picture" of a cat on a black and white wallpaper.
This is a very wild quilt, and I look forward to see how it will look in the end!
