While I’m working on current projects, I’m always scheming future ones. These fabrics are a Japanese linen - I’m not sure how they will quilt and wash. Their feel is so much different from the meaty softness of peppered shot cottons. But the colors...I love them.
During 2019 I participated in a one block a week sew-a-long with the Canadian Quilters Association - #52blocks52weeks. The weekly instructions were all in greyscale, which suited my scrap stash perfectly. At the beginning of 2020, with a couple of extra blocks, I put what I had into a layout with generous sashing to make a napping quilt - 60” x 80”. The quilting is simple, it’s batted with wool, and the backing is a wonderful soft muslin. I like how it turned out. And I may have a buyer.
