I've been experimenting (as usual) and playing with some ideas; some have worked, others have not. But that's how you learn - right?
In the meantime, I found some old photos of quilts I made back in 1997-99 (ha - can I say the last century??) I no longer have this quilt - have no idea what happened to it. I have one strip of blocks left..
I scanned in the other photos; it's interesting to see pieces I no longer have and can't find. This baby quilt went to somebody, but I have no idea who. Made from my grandmother's scraps. I think I really didn't understand the value of them. Wish i had this now.
I was always challenging myself to make ONE block in a few different combinations. All scraps. I wonder if I took these apart and still have the blocks. Shall have to look.
Another baby quilt 1997. Was I crazy?? Actually, by a couple of years later, I had ditched traditional patterns altogether. Hmmm...second from right in middle row looks suspiciously like left bottom row above.
Finally, where is THIS one? I love it! trompe l'oeil. Same era - mid-to-late '90's. That wonderful yellow fabric is from Usha - Handloom Batik. And I see a piece of Kaffe's early stripes. Oh, my. Even then, I have to admit I like my color choices.
Enough memory lane stuff. I opened a trunk and it turned out to be a Pandora's Box full of vintage antique blocks I had forgotten about. Oh, no!
Time to sleep - have to be up super-early tomorrow to get to the airport.
