I love this fabric. Of course I would. It's a batik. One of the things I love about batiks is how the colors melt into one another. But every once in a while my Internet purchases are just wrong. This grey/grape/purple batik has yet to work itself into any quilt, and I don't think it ever will. So I made 4 Mors bags of the fabric. Because batiks are so tightly woven, I didn't even line these. All 4 are going into the trunk of my car. I can't believe how many bags I've made and how many times I've been without a bag - a discovery I always make after I've shopped.
This last bag is made from a Jinny Beyer border fabric that I bought on sale years ago, seriously maybe 15 years ago. This is the last of it although I've never used this one in a quilt either. The lining fabric is nice but so far away from the batik look that I love so much. This deep boxed bag will just sit in the studio, waiting for its owner to be identified.
Also I've started working on a new wall hanging for our living room but am not ready to talk about it just yet. And there's a new series of grief projects that I started today. Predictably, I'm sad. It's fitting for the tone of today, 9/11.
