It is raining. Tomorrow it will rain. It snowed at the weekend up the mountain. I am fed up with it. Here, in the spirit of reminding the universe what we need (Warmth! Spring! Sun! Sitting outside in cafés! Playing in the paddling pool in the park!), is a small quilt made on a large fat quarter than just needs to be turned into a cheerful cushion. Or something.
I quilted it with the Aurifil bought from Miss E’s shop. It is simply superb thread. It didn’t break once in all this thing — quilted very densely, often over the same spot many times. I now need to lightly quilt the blue bits and make it into a cushion. I’m not sure I really like the result, actually, but it was fun to do totally unplanned, free-style appliqué (raw edge, just very roughly pinned and free-motion quilted in place). I think it looks vaguely and rather worryingly like some sort of modern ecclesiastical vestment.
Do you think the sun will get the message?
Happy sewing! JJ
