I have been captivated by this quilt on the cover of Susan Beal's "Modern Log Cabin Quilting" and spent part of my evening doing my own version of Jude's "what iffing" but I've always called it "spoze-yah" (go on, say it out loud) .

It involves some things I have been warned against, like sewing dyed and painted but unrinsed cloth. Speculating about some of Mary Anne Jordan's pieces like this one and thinking about what the dye will do if you just let it.


  1. I am working on a version of that quilt using up some of my scraps. I'll be curious to see what you do with it.

  2. That *does* look like an interesting plan-----"traditional" sure ain't boring anymore

  3. I enjoy your experimental attitude, "what the dye will do if you just let it." Yeah, lot's of fun things can happen.


Tell me everything!

Now we're having fun. Thanks, Liz , for reminding me that we are not knitting. It doesn't matter if the pieces are two to four...

Play it again Sam.
