It’s probably fair to say that we all incorporate mistakes now and then: the patchwork inserted upside down generating new ideas; the over-exuberant trim of a nearly finished piece requiring additional edging.
Last night a little vertical landscape quilt that I was about to finish was left on the coffee table during dinner and got shoved around and folded over. Voila! The quilt that I’d only ever felt lukewarm about suddenly excited me.
I lined it with a scrap of a batik shirt from Indonesia. I was able to line up the shirt pocket to serve as inner pocket for the pouch.
The indigo sky and Deb Lacativa moon have a Hazel feel to them, but the woven section with the grey/black/white slashes is decidedly mine.
A while back I did some inside out patchwork. On purpose! It is here somewhere. I like how this one is going.
Love to see it.
Might have posted it on instagram a while back, gonna check..
I found the piece, will take a pic tomorrow. There are also 2 upside down nine patches on the magic cloth. But I will get back to that one soon anyway…gosh it seems so long ago.
I’ll look for it
Just posted it on Instagram 🙃
In the first pic, how the cloth speaks to Winter…rain, snow. I like what you weren’t too wild about 🙂
love how much the circle was in your thoughts as you made this
Well and I should have also mentioned Jude with the cloth weaving.
Unplanned for discoveries are often the best. Again, love your moon marks, and your mixing and weaving of prints is just great.
Agree. Someday I’ll go “full Hazel” and stitch stars and mysterious lines of motion too.
sometimes just pure magic comes shining through work when we least expect it. This piece speaks to my soul
It’s so true! Thank you. It’s amazing to me how it was so Blah as a teeny quilt but lovely as a small pouch.
