fall is coming!!
Fall is here! The mornings are so crisp, I just love it. My Mom did not like fall, she thought it was a death of sorts, the drying leaves, the browning grass. But for me, I enjoy the colors and smells of fall!! Sort of preparation for new life; potential energy, sort of like fabrics are potentially quilts and seeds are potential new plants!
Here is our string quilt on our bed. We use it a lot.
The next picture is a little quilt I have been working on for a while. I know, I know, no more little quilts is what I said!! But I had to finish this one...right?? Can we altogether say "Yuck"!! Some ideas are better left in my head, not put into fabric realization. But at least it is a finish. This is one of those situations when I get caught up in the little tiny leftover pieces, and the original big project just sits there and ages... I cut the pieces for the big quilt, then the leftovers are so intriguing that I cut smaller and smaller pieces...The strings finish are 1/4 inch at times on this piece. It is a string pieced quilt, and I put borders around the strings, then the half square triangles, then put it altogether. I don't know what I was thinking, because I can't see to quilt on the black anyway.
Thank all of you for your kind comments. You are the bestest!!
