Lazy Punk #3 and the Laziest Punks Ever!

I've almost finished quilting my Mom's Lazy Punk #2. It was quilted on my Juki TL2010Q and I am pleased with the results. I'll post a picture when it is done. My next job is to layer and quilt my Mom's Lazy Punk #3. She has the blocks straight set for this one and it gives the quilt a very different look! The light is shining through the quilt so you don't get a good sense of the colour but it is vibrant!

And now for the laziest punks ever! I gave my Lazy Punk quilt to someone special and she tells me that of all the quilts I've made over the years, it is her favourite!

She is not a quilter but wanted to make some Lazy Punk blocks. She purchased artist's canvases that were stretched over wooden frames and painted them. Scrapbooking paper was used to make the blades and hub cap. Once everything was glued in place it was sealed. She now has wall art to complement her Lazy Punk quilt!

It would be interesting to use old comic books, newspapers or pages from old books to make these bits of wall art! When I tell her about fussy cutting I think she'll want to make more wall art! Nine hung that so that they abut one another would make a great faux wall quilt!

On Friday I'll be releasing Block 6 in the Value Proposition Hexagon Quilt Along. I can't wait to share and hope you like it as much as I do!

Until I post again, happy sewing!


  1. Isn't something when a pattern catches the imagination and attention as does Steam Punk? They are all beautiful!

  2. What a great idea your friend had. I've seen these cute little 4 inch canvases and now my mind is whirling with possibilities!

  3. Ps- I'm looking forward to Fridays block!

  4. love your quilt, a very generous gift. great idea for wall art.

  5. Oh Karen I am itching to make that quilt but I ordered the pattern so I could piece it on the machine my hands are so sore doing hand work. I want to be able to make the hexie quilt so saving my hands for that.

  6. I love the look of the sun shining through the back of the quilt. That's a great idea for complimentary art.
