farewell and adieu

 
Please forgive the over indulgence of eyecandy in this post.

Over the weekend, someone decided that Dreamflowers would look great over the rocking chair on her front porch which is just the sort of use I imagined for these light weight quilts

This morning was for the ritual of inspecting the thing for stray threads or cat hair, taking a few photos and being grateful that this labor of joy is getting off it's hangar in the closet and going out into the world. Graduation day! 

I made this one back when I was still working at the local Viking store tucked inside JoAnn's. Surrounded by sewing machines, among them, the Diamond, I sat hand appliqueing this piece. The job was really not for me. Right now, I'm inspired to start a new one. Slow cloth with a mission in mind.

Very understandable that you want to keep a multi-photoed memory of it...

What a lollypop beauty! How did you do this? Is is a log cabin with appliques on the top? As always, your colors and shapes are so wonderful.

Exactly...freeform log cabin blocks machine pieced with hand appliqued flowers and leaves all hand dyed, soft muslin.

Oh Deb, your work has such depth. This is beautiful. I've been away awhile, sick, then moved. Glad to be back, catching up on your lovely archives.
