For me, every piece of fabric is a very special part of my quilt journey.
I haven't made a traditional style quilt in a long time, but I am very happy with the way this turned out. Before I started cutting, I drew out my pattern. I wanted to make sure I was showcasing these beautiful fabrics, and didn't want to cut them too small.
Most importantly, I'm thrilled these gorgeous fabrics are no longer sitting in a box... it took a lot of courage to cut them. But I think it was worth it... now they will live on in this new shape.
Next I will start on the quilting. Thinking of hand-quilting it with hand-dyed indigo sashiko thread.
