I decided to play along with Tonya's Fungly challenge but of course, I have to do it my way. I couldn't find a piece of fabric that I considered really Fungly so intstead I have gone back to my trusty scrap bag and tried unlikely combinations. I chose a wonky block from Collaborative Quilting. I did follow the rule about no ripping out, which explains why the orange and green one in the middle row has one triangle on backwards. I guess this just proves that Freddy Moran's theory that ten colors can look wrong but 100 are always right.
When I got tired of piecing the little blocks (they end up at about 4 inches square) I made some strips and cut them into triangles. I find them a bit too big for the blocks but in the spirit of Fungly, I guess I should use them anyway. I had thought of putting a wonky border around each of the little blocks. Can you say "overkill"?
I did get my braid quilt back on the frame and quilted about two inches before I ran out of brown thread. I was sure I had another spool but I must have used it for something else, so I was stalled on that. I could have made a backing for the B&W but why do that when you can start something new?
