I've hand quilted before as part of church sewing circle, but for the first time, I'm going to hand quilt my own quilt. I pieced this top last summer as a living room throw, and I began quilting yesterday. I'm going to quilt in casual concentric circles using the hoop as guide; this will be my major handwork for a week at the beach coming up.
The lovely name comes from the printed names on the fabrics' selvedge.
I am a wife and mother of two. I am a stay-at-home mom, a Mennonite, and a city dweller. I like to make things (see the blog categories below). This blog is a record of what I make and the ways I try to be thrifty. Welcome!
"Thrift is the really romantic thing; economy is more romantic than extravagance...thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste...if a man could undertake to make use of all the things in his dustbin, he would be a broader genius than Shakespeare."
