Close to the Edge

I've been playing with some small bits this week. In the back of the room where our quilt guild meets, there is a very popular couch  - we deposit fabric we no longer need there. I found a bag of leftovers from our resident Seminole quilting artist, Marge Banks. I loved the colors and decided to challenge myself to make them into a small quilt.

I pulled out several of the shirts I've collected and went to town. To give you an idea of scale, Marge's original pieced bits measure 1 1/2" square and smaller.

It's nearly together - here it is this morning. My plan is to finish it today and have it quilted and ready to show to Marge at guild next week:




A belated happy birthday to one of my favorite humans, Kurt Vonnegut:

I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.
