This quilt just flowed. It came together so easily. It’s the third and last quilt that I’m making for Ellen.
I still have to back and tack it, but soon the three quilts will be all done and ready for Ellen’s family for Christmas.
I often wonder how much of what I’m feeling and what I’m listening to goes into my quilts. I’ve been reading the new Biography on Lou Reed and while I made this quilt I listened to many of his records.
Most of the music was new to me, I never really listened much to Lou Reed, but reading his biography made me want to hear his music.
I love Apple Music for just this reason. I get to listen to just about any music I want. They make it so easy.
I used a pair of Jon’s old jeans in this quilt. You can see the wear in the jeans fabric in the first patch I made and the shadow of the unfaded pocket towards the bottom. Some of the other fabric came from my friend Susan, who just a couple of weeks ago, brought me a bag of linens that were her mothers. There’s also two sets of scrubs, and some Indian fabric.
I’ll be finishing it up next week.
