I had to make something -- and because it's me, it would be quilted == for a young woman I don't know. She had posted a profile of herself in which she used the word "funky" several times. Clearly to her, it's a positive word that she applies to herself. I pondered this for quite a while, and came to the conclusion, that I don't know what "funky" means in today's parlance.
Did I have any fabrics I'd call funky? I wasn't sure. Finally I chose a couple of the same pattern in different colorways -- actually three, the third being only a small piece -- and decided to make the background to the star a dusty pink with a tiny white pin dot -- a very conservative choice. I could have chosen something stronger, say a bile green of magnetic blue and maybe that would have been "funkier" -- but it was beyond my ability to do so. I didn't want something that threatened to bite my hand, chew it up and spit it out. I'm afraid this is as funky as this no longer young quilter can get.
This strip quilt was made using drier sheet as the foundation. This quick and easy method is always fun because I can choose exactly which piece comes next but will always be surprised when I put several together and see the patterns formed.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
