I've just finished these three little selvage quilts -- 9x9 with alphabet centers for three children of a young mom in Canada who liked my selvage postcards. They are for our three kids, Anna, Mary and Jonah. In return she is knitting me a pair of mittens. a very nice swap from my point of view as I had fun making the mini-quilts -- some people call them "quilties" although I'm not very much into using cute diminutive even when it's fairly appropriate as in this case.
I feel a major selvage quilt at the edge of my mind, but more about that in the fairly distant future. I'm working on my star project and will have a picture of it's progress soon.
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!
