I pieced together my latest quilt yesterday. My idea was to make a gentle quilt. The tan corduroy is a piece of a shirt and I left the pocket, button holes and a loop off the pocket ( I can’t imagine what that might be used for).
I cut up an old torn and stained quilt top that Jon bought for me at Sheldon’s Farm Stand in Salem. The colors were perfect and I putting it next to the flowered piece which has similar colors but is so completely different. From a distance they actually blend. Some of the fabric I’ve had for years, and some I just got last week. The peach is a house coat from the 1950’s. The dark green stip with blue ovals was sent to me from a reader. It’s from a line of Gee’s Bend fabric. The most incongruous piece, above the white rectangle, is a tie. It’s a bit of a stretch color wise (which is why I used it) but the diagonals work well with the piece below it.
