Yesterday I showed you these fabrics. The only way to celebrate these large-scale prints in patchwork is with big chunks. So I assumed this would be a nice project for the painkiller fog of the past few weeks.

Heh. It took me an hour to cut out 25 squares. And then I had to take a nap.

On Crafturday

Slowly seaming, it took a week to sew the rows and get the top together.


I managed to baste and quilt in an afternoon, but the lines are kinda wonky. Eh. No worries. No one else will know.


It’s simple and the colors make me happy.

These will be a nice places for reading in the summer.
