Windows

4 02 2013

This weekend I spent some quality time channeling my inner old lady and took a class in ‘cathedral window’ quilting.

First I sifted through my large pile of remnants, I had more purple fabrics than any other color so away I cut, purple windows on a light neutral background.

the construction of the blocks was cool, and kind of counter-intuitive.

The neutrals are all machine sewn and the windows are hand stitched.

At one point, I had a giant fabric origami…

sewing in the windows reminds me of my sashiko project from a while back

All in all a lovely (albeit time consuming) project.
