Aunt Janet's quilt--a start
When I was sorting through the clothing I had to grin. My aunt was a fan of stripes and she wore a lot of black, denim and navy. At least the color palette is quite consistent throughout! A lot of the clothing is knit, so I'm stabilizing the squares with Pellon SF-101. This is uncharted territory for me, making a quilt out of knits and denim, but so far, so good. I'll probably be holding my breath the entire time, so I better hurry! Ha!
On a side note, I've actually started using my design wall as just that--a design wall! Normally I keep my orphan blocks or works in progress on the design wall (it's ever-changing artwork) and I lay out my quilts on the floor. Now that I'm using it for it's intended purpose, the floor is clean(er) and my husband it thrilled. It's pretty sad that it took me this long to figure it out, but hey, better late than never, right?
Happy Monday to you!
