This is a color wash pieced quilt that I've been slowly working on. In one of the books I have about color wash quilts there is a garden scene similar to this. It has appliqued additional flowers all over the bottom so I thought I'd try extra flowers and butterflies. Mine are only pinned in place right now. I think there will be more butterflies and maybe more flowers. I'm contemplating what to do -- that's the purpose of a design wall, right?
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!
