Over time, you'd probably detect a pattern in my quilting, but just in case the first two quilts I've shown in this blog does not make it clear--I'm hooked on scraps! Love them all. While yes, there are colors and textures that I like better than others, I've never met a totally ugly piece of fabric. Unique perhaps. Challenging, most definitely. However, eventually they will find a home in my quilts.
Why scraps? When scraps play well together, the quilt has the feeling of a glorious field of wildflowers, a multi-hued sunset, or a stained glass window. The quilt simply sings. I find trying to create such quilts totally irresistible.
This particular quilt is one of my favorites. It is hand-pieced and tied. I'd hoped to hand-quilt it too, but when I got the daybed, I knew this was the quilt that needed to be on it. I finished the quilt the quickest way that I could. My solution to the issue that I didn't get to hand-quilt this one as I'd intended? Well, I'm making another one!
