Bedlam Back Porch, What Happens Next

I began sewing my Bedlam Back Porch quilt today.  Susan gave me some fabric to use, but I’m having a bit of a difficult time making it work.  So instead of forcing something, I stood in front of my stitched drawing and asked it what it wanted.

Within minutes, I clearly saw the thin dark red line and  1930s-40s squares around it.  I added the plaid, which Susan sent, to the squares .

After that one of the pieces of fabric that Susan sent was just right.

It worked so well the first time, I just kept asking the quilt what it wanted.

I knew at some point I’d need to add fabric onto the sides, but that wasn’t happening yet.

At the end of the day I was left with a very long piece.

I started to add fabric to the sides but it ended up pulling it all away after looking at the picture I took of the piece.  When I did, I could see what needs to happen next.

But I’m a bit superstitious about it, so I’ll wait to see if feel the same tomorrow before writing about it.

  1. Maria, this is looking beautiful! I love that you remove yourself from your work for clarity. You did that with Sweet Dreams. This is going to be another beauty!
