Showing my Bratty Side

28 comments
Being the youngest of 5 sisters I was the bratty one growing up. So in my typical bratty self I'm posting S.I.C.S. = stuff I can't show. Don't you hate when bloggers do that? Sorry. I do have a love/dislike relationship with teaser posts like this. Especially since I'm the type to want to know the end of a movie before I enter the theater. So here I am teasing you.
This may look like a crumpled up bunch of fabric but it actually is a flimsy. And I bunched it up on purpose to disguise the block identity. (Since the last time I used the flimsy word several people e-mailed me asking what a flimsy is, I'll define it. A flimsy is a finished quilt top ready to be quilted by machine or hand)
There, this photo is a little bit less annoying. You can see the colors and scrappiness (not a real word but it should be). So you know it must be a quilt top I made.
Here is just a little more. And look, no cut off points! I wish I could do that for every block every time.

This baby is going to the machine quilter Thursday morning at Broadbent's. Meet me there and I'll show it to you. (ha) But you have to promise not to tell what my new quilt/pattern looks like. Some of you may be good at figuring it out.

I love the scrappiness of this flimsy! My favorite quilts are the scrappy ones. I have an idea what your pattern may be so will be interested to see the "reveal" after it's quilted. Whatever the pattern, I know it will be fun because you do fun quilts so well. :-)

Well....If you MUST tease us...at
least you are doing it with good stuff!!! Anxious to see it!

Brandie said...

I love the crumpled mess. The colors and scrappyness are so you. Impatiently waiting for the reveal!

Lynn said...

Being a little sister also I understand the need and talent it takes to tease people. It really is an art perfected at the mercy of our older sisters - carried on throughout our lives - right?

AnnieO said...

I love a mystery, so fear not--I won't call you a brat :) Looking forward to seeing it in full glory!

Simone de Klerk said...

Lovely fabrics used in this quilt. Can't wait to see the flimsy become a finished quilt!

Jana said...

I love how your scrappiness always looks so good together! Will be fun to see the unveiling of your quilt when you can show it!

If I was going to be out of town I would be heading to Broadbents tomorrow to see your new creation, you big tease.

Sue said...

Oooooh! A new quilting term learnt today "flimsy" and to think I have a room full of them and didn't know!

Dawn said...

You are a big tease!! tee hee I can't wait to see the finished project. Hugs

Darlene said...

Oh you are being a brat - I love it. I'm the oldest and I've been known to be a huge brat. LOL

Love the flimsy!

Lynne said...

I haven't got a clue but I am loving those 1930s fabrics. And you were the baby of the family? I was the unloved middle child!

AnyoneCanQuilt said...

What is it?! What is it?! Can't wait for the reveal, but I love just looking at all of the fabrics for now! x

Trisha said...

I'm stumped! Can't wait to see more of it. I do like teasers and I would hate to know the end of a movie before I've watched it. I don't even like to read the jacket of a book because it gives to much away! :)

pratima said...

I wouldn't mind a tease if it is so full of loveliness as yours ;)
I'll be eagerly waiting for it's return from the quilter :)

Muddling Through said...

Oh, Nanette, you ARE a bad one! Now I'll have to practice my patience (of which I have little) until you reveal the whole....

Kaaren said...

Love the colors and yes, you are being a brat...big time!

I can't figure it out so I guess I'll just have to wait for the REAL reveal! Bring it on!

Nedra said...

I don't think you are a bit bratty. You just show what you can, when you can. The fabrics are beautiful. Looking forward to when you can show more.

Jen in NY said...

Nanette, I cannot believe you were ever bratty! And you're showing us what you can, nothing bratty about that! I love your fabrics, they are so YOU!

Jackie said...

You are too funny! I love teaser posts and this is no exception!! Love the fabrics and can't wait for the reveal, you tease you!!

Shelley said...

Seriously, is that the brattiest thing you could come up with Nannette! LOL! Just kidding! Scrappiness...hhmmm...yep, it's in my dictionary too!

PamKittyMorning said...

You are a brat! I'm dying to know and wish I could go and check it out.

Lori Holt said...

Oh yes...I'm real good at figuring it out:)
Love from one brat to another...

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

It looks very cute and I'll happily come back to see the whole quilt.

SarahVee said...

thanks for the scrappy sneak peek! I'm excited for you and for us to see a new pattern:)

MichelleB said...

Too funny! I agree with you, sneak peeks can be kind of annoying (but sometimes necessary). And I want to know the ending of a movie before I go see it, too!

Vicki said...

It's going to be so pretty!
