In the spring Jon and I went to visit out shearer Liz Willis on her farm in Vermont. I got to see the sheep she was looking to find a new home for and chose two ewes. She’ll bring them with her when she comes to shear the sheep in October.
In exchange, I’m making a quilt for Liz.
That same day, she handed me the bag of fabric, some already cut into squares. That was a far as she got on the quilt she planned to make some years ago.
I emptied the bag of fabric out on my work table this morning. I’m not used to working with such measured pieces of fabric so I took out my Gees Bend book for inspiration.
Then I put some of the squares together cut others up and started sewing.
I got this far and felt like I needed to add some fabric with a different tone. So I used the back of one of the prints instead of the front.
This is as far as I got today. I hope to finish designing it tomorrow.
