I have just two nine-patch blocks to stitch up, and then I'll be ready to begin assembling this piece, as yet unnamed. I've used mostly-hand dyed, discharged, shiboried fabrics as complements to the white. These two horizontal panels take the place of two nine-patch blocks each, as alternative ways to fill the same amount of space.
These are three ways I've made tiny, one-inch nine-patch blocks into 4-1/2 inch blocks.
Following assembly, I'll quilt the piece to a backing fabric ~ still undecided at this point whether there'll be an inner layer. Then I've got some applique in mind.
I've really enjoyed working on this so far. I've got an idea or two in mind for what's next. But there's still a lot to do on this piece before then.
Perhaps I'll call this, "I know what I did this summer." Probably I won't.
Thanks for your wonderful, heartfelt comments on my last post. I really do feel your love, truly for the first time. I no longer have that faux-belief about my unlovability in the way.
