"Moving right along", as Kermit the Frog used to say/sing---isn't it funny how some things stay embedded in your brain?
I completed my little medallion quilt, now named Attic Treasure. I made two, in fact. This is the second, and it made up quicker, since I already had the design and fabrics in mind. With the second quilt I tried using a controlled amount of fabric as if from a kit. I tried not to over-duplicate. In the end, I couldn't help myself--I had to add a few more little pieces, especially around the outside border.
The shop always keeps my quilts on display forever, and so if I want to keep one myself to enjoy, I must make two! Which is not at all that difficult when they are only 18 inches square. I love the look of lots of busy fabrics. I guess you can see that! As always, my quilt contains old and new fabrics mixed. There are a few in there from Windham's Harriet Beecher Stowe collection, and always lots of Judie Rothermels fabrics. I learned a long time ago that I am not the only one who loves to look at quilts and point to fabric pieces that I recognize and perhaps own. Aren't we funny?
