Paradigm Shift

Paradigm Shift

My very old scarf, fabric from the quilt designer,  Kenna Ogg and fabric that I brought home with me from India.  That’s what Paradigm Shift is made of.

Except for the back.  That came from Linda.

I couldn’t find the right fabric for the back of the quilt.  I even went to the new thrift store in town, sure it was there.  But when I got back to my studio, I realized the clothes I bought thinking I could use, didn’t work.  (Although I did cut the long linen skirt short on one of the  dresses I bought for the fabric and hemmed it.  So instead of using it in a quilt, I’m wearing it).

Then I thought of the box of clothes and fabric that Linda sent me.  I had gone though it, but still hadn’t put it all away on my shelves.  I dug though it as if I knew what I was looking for.  And I’m sure somewhere inside of me I remember the Indian bedspread on the bottom of the box.  I pulled it out and after trimming the edges, it was a perfect fit, in every way.

When I look at Paradigm Shift, I think of those little plastic puzzles with the square pieces that you move around to make a picture.  The quilt looks like it has movable parts to me.

Erika was interested in Paradigm Shift when I was working on it  and she let me know.  So Yesterday, when I finished it, I sent her a photo of it and she bought it.  So soon it will be on its way to its new home on the other side of the country.

  1. Loved this quilt from the very first stitch shown. It’s a showstopper for sure – just wanted to ‘say’…….Linda
