I am in love with this piece-but to be fair, I love blue and white, especially indigo and white. How big does this piece want to be?
It's a 9 patch quilt. I'm going to piece a double 9 patch of all muslin - 3 more blocks across on all sides - you can see the width of this border in top photo. Then I'll see. It may be bigger - I like bigger. And that it's hand pieced is a powerful statement on the gift of time.x
I love hand piecing-most of my work is hand pieced. I work full time, have a child in college and coach swimming, so hand piecing works best for me-you can pick it up and put it down which is what I love-plus I love the power of hand stitching.
I would not have been able to do as many quilts as I have without the portability and ease of hand stitch. I love to stitch. Glad you are a convert, Tina.
is this the one you've been working on during visits with your dad? if so, it takes "gifts on this earth" and "gifts of time" to a whole deeper level. this one seems testament to how little things add up into big things. i like bigger, too. me thinks i'm overcompensating for my teensy little studio space. xx
yes, little things add up to big things.in this piece, I like the simplicity. I'm able to zone out when I look at that checkerboard. Simple things. Huge.
I hope that we can have a conversation about creation. Thank you for taking interest. x
