It was probably 1976. My next door neighbor's mother had worked in a garment factory and Connie, seeing that I made quilts, offered me STACKS of these leftover polka-dot fabrics in red and blue. Being the bicentennial year, it seemed appropriate to use them. TA DA!!Don't you want a closer look at this wonderful piece of op art??I was still cutting every piece out with scissors (there were no rotary cutters) and I was hand-piecing, although I did put the poly/cotton border on by machine. Oy! So what do I do with this thing? All that hand work - not sure if I can bear to slash and redo it. WHAT WAS I THINKING? #2 This was later - probably early 80's because by this time I was piecing by machine. Mauve and brown. Good grief - a wonderful combination but so dated! I actually like it but not enough to finish it. This one I could probably cut up and redo without much pain,but is it worth it? I am blocked these days and need some therapy sewing - but not sure this is it.
Just look at all those ditsy prints. Oh, dear. What next?
I had to stay home today to wait for Comcast to show up and fix the tv so I puttered around, cleaning my sewing room (what else is new?) and actully had some stuff on the wall before I got distracted by these "vintage" beauties. Back to the wall and we'll see what transpires.
