Meanwhile, I have been accumulating scraps of wool batting left over from various projects and bits of a wonderful Windham backing - it's a wonderful texture thing. And it dawned on me I could join 4 of these little 8" blocks and make a 15.5" block and that perhaps some handwork would perk these blocks up. So I began to play and came up with this:
I knew all along that I would use Sharon Pederson's reversible technique to join these 20 blocks. But then of course the dilemma is what fabrics to use. And that's when my QuiltCon 2018 shoppers - Holly and Sarah - come in. They bought for me a panel of Yoshiko Jinzenji fabrics, and I instantly knew that it needed to be used for this quilt. Here's a picture of this panel.

A quick shout-out to my quilty peeps who are retreating in Racine this weekend - heeeeeeey! In honor of this retreat I am keeping retreat hours this weekend (which means sewing as soon as I get up). We're getting ready to leave town, and too many things need to get wrapped up. Peace out!
