Liberated Piecing, Wild Quilting and Divide and Conquer

Liberated Piecing Mystery
 Cindy Carter hosted a liberated piecing mystery. This is my completed top.
I figured if the quilt was liberated, then I should continue on with wild quilting!

 My quilting was inspired by two Craftsy Classes
I know that the quilting would have looked better in a matching thread but I was feeling pretty wild and wanted to get bold.  I am glad that I used the black thread for quilting because it really helps me to see where I need to improve and by trying to incorporate so many designs in this quilt, I got a better feel of what I think my personal style will be.  
Wild Quilting
















I figured this was a good quilt to practice my wild quilting which was inspired by Christina Cameli's Craftsy Class.

Divide & Conquer
I also incorporated some techniques of Lori Kennedy's Craftsy Class.

Play With Me QAL

Hex Game
The game boards have been quite interesting to see and make.  
Each month, Alida gives a brief history of each game.  This particular game was reinvented by John Nash. 
 I don't think I will ever learn how to play this game!LOL
I am linking up to the website where all of the participants' game boards can be viewed.  Click here.

This QAL should go together very quickly.  The picture doesn't do it justice.  It is very bright!
The fabric collection is mostly from Pat Sloan's Bobbins and Bits for Moda.
