FOUND IN MY STASH
I was happy to learn that indigo is the color for August. I collect antique quilts and am interested in learning about natural dyes used in the past. Barbara Brackman’s excellent posts about old colors has been a great education for me. I recommend checking out her blog, Civil War Quilts. (Sorry, I have not yet been able to link up with others on my posts.)
After hunting through my stash I found this group of indigo batiks. I like the playfulness of some, which will go well with my balloon blocks.
I think I’m becoming a real quilter. All of a sudden I have three WIPs. The photo below shows the first step in making blocks for a D9P. It is a surprise for a friend, who truly deserves the comfort of a quilt. I had some charm packs on hand and found out that these contain her favorite colors.
I am also helping another friend to design her own table runner, using a nice packet of Bali Snaps in her favorite colors. I also have one Project Linus flimsy which needs to be backed and quilted. So I am trying to put in some daily time on these projects, and I’m now looking forward to that each day. One more thing is dreaming up a plan for a girl quilt using Cyndy’s giveaway fat quarters.
Thanks to all of you for your hints, help and encouragement. You are such a great bunch!
