“It is said there are flowers that bloom only once in a hundred years. Why should there not be some that bloom once in a thousand, in ten thousand years? Perhaps we never know about them simply because this “once in a thousand years” has come today.”
― Yevgeny Zamyatin, We
I have to admit to not being a big fan of Kaffe Fassett fabrics. While I enjoy the splashes of color and the vibrancy those provide, I have difficulty feeling comfortable using them. After finishing my recent quilt ” the flower garden”, I had a big stack of scraps left. Wanting to get them out of my stash, I decided to strip piece them together, then do some additional slash and mash.
I actually like the end result and wildness that is ultimately created. Then I decided to add some pseudo flowers in appliqué in the center.
My favorite fence to do photos on has disappeared because of losing a tree in the yard, so I had to switch spots. The new place has garlic and oregano growing in front of it. But, I rather like the blossoms on the garlic!
The center section is appliquéd and quilted by hand. The border was stitch in the ditch quilted by machine.
I think this will become the new favorite comfort/cuddle quilt!
