has used up all the cloudy days
that Colorado usually has for the entire year.
So when the sun
finally came out today,
it was the perfect day
to take my quilt outside
and share my January Mini.
33" x 33"
The pattern is adapted
from Betsy Chutchian's design
found in the 2020
That Patchwork Place Quilt Calendar.
I had only a yard of that wonderful large print,
also from Betsy's Eliza's Indigo collection,
so it is smaller than the original and with less hst's.
Isn't it all about making do?
I love the rich indigo blues that I pulled from my stash to
use in the blocks.
The blocks were done before I left on my trip,
but once I was home, it gave me an
opportunity to reconnect with my
Sometimes, I hate to admit, that I get
weird things that pop up in my head.
I decided to machine quilt my free hand, organic feathers
in the center square, triangles and border.
They're not perfect, but I love stitching them.
The phrase "full figured" kept spinning in my head
as I tried to make each plume plump and rounded.
That lead me to remember the
ads that Jane Russell use to do
for Playtex, way back when.
Anyone else remember this?
I guess it takes whatever it takes
to get the results you want
to make it look perfect
under that blue Colorado sky.
