This was such a fun - FUN - quilt to piece. Every last bit of fabric in this was in my stash already.
I really want to use up a lot of stash this year, get it out of the bins and into quilts to enjoy! I have leftover strips from log cabins I made back in 2001, for crying out loud!
For these I sewed and sewed and trimmed and trimmed, squaring off the blocks with my 10.5 inch square ruler.
I can see why they call it "liberated" quilting!
Above, there's a little piece of Japanese tenugui in the lower left corner - fishnet pattern.
It's always tricky to give a baby quilt of any particular "style" when you don't know the Mom's exact taste, but...... remembering back to when I was a young mom (lo those many years ago), I appreciated having a bumper crop of blankets and quilts that could be used hard and washed 1000 times.
I have to admit, I have no idea what possessed me to buy this shockingly bright yellow in the first place. The bright yellow negates any 'wabi-sabi' quality this little quilt might have had, but, oh well.... it was fun to do and nothing precious.
Meanwhile I am really hoping we don't have a power outage with this big storm. We are prepared, mostly:
David flew to Japan today, but I've got my seventeen year old son who is happy and willing to keep the fire going, and to use our new snow blower - so I can't complain!
All of this snow should mean more quilting time for me, yay! That's my plan for ALL day tomorrow;).
