Call Me Crazy...
Call me crazy, but I adore that Amish quilt that's on the screen on my computer, (you can see another photo here...) and I finally gave in and decided to make a mini version to have and to hold. I tried matching the colors on the computer, and obviously the orange that came with the others is too yellow. The quilt really needs RED, but I have red in my stash, so I think I'll be all set.
Unlike my pal Valerie Levy, I am NOT a Kona acolyte, and have precious few solids. Solids do not sing to me. Instead, they generally groan. I find them flat and boring.
Yeah, I know. They work best when you have hundreds from which to choose, and I do not have the patience for hundreds. Don't bother correcting me, or cajoling me, or trying to convince me. I ain't going there.
I don't know how big my version of this quilt will be (certainly under 40" square) and I sure as hell don't know where I'll hang it, but this quilt has spoken to me for years and finally I am going to have one I can look at without having to remember which book it's in.
The original is in wool and is quilted in black thread, and I'll have mine quilted in black thread too.
Haven't got there yet.
Isn't life fun?
