Free Range Quilting

I was explaining to my sister the idea of creating quilts with a relaxed attitude...such as the wonky block, liberated quilting, modern quilt making / Denyse Schmidt style.  Add some chunky stitches with perle cotton and what could be better?  So she says to me, " You mean like Free Range Quilting?"  I love it!  How clever and perfect to call this style - Free Range - thanks Shawn!

So I have been working on a few Free Range blocks....searching through my Electric Quilt program - finding traditional blocks to switch up.
Eight- Pointed Stars....

Baskets......too cute!

Friendship Star....

I think my fun is done for to Drs. appointments. 


  1. lots of fun blocks you've got there!! Are they going to come together at some point?

  2. I just love the term "free range quilting". So liberating huh?! :o)
