I'm going to document my improvised quilts now. These are my favorites.
We were introduced to palindromes by a friend who notes when they occur with basketball scores. We watch eagerly for the score to be 48-84! 21-12!! What dimension this adds to watching basketball games.
Now for the quilt. It's small, measuring 25" x 36". Hand pieced and hand quilted, it includes many feedsack fabrics along with what look like clothing scraps. It is a strip pieced version of the simple hourglass block. I enjoy how randomly the fabrics come together, definitely scraps from some quilter's scrapbasket.
I never heard of a palindrome before. Thank you for pointing that out to me! That one, 01-01-2010, happens to be my birthday and I love how unique a date it was!ReplyDelete
This is so lovely Deb. I am an English stitcher, who has become quite addicted to scrappy. It has been a pleasure dropping by here during the last year and seeing all these treasures.Best wishes, Happy New Year Kath at railwaycottage.blogspot.comReplyDelete
