goddess and quilt....

i’ve been playing around lately kind-of copying some of the “fraying” that jude does over at Spirit Cloth… (she’s in my blog roll) it’s a nice look… i am so used to turning and trimming and trying to get everything “just right” that a little fray feels like a walk on the wild side…. a little tripping of the light fandango…a rebel yell…so i took this patch work block  of japanese indigos and stuff ( i do love the indigo) and ripped up some red strips to peek out from behind and ripped a big square of linen-y stuff to back it… and now I am doing the embellishing… that’s really the best part… and funnily enough… embellishing a relatively small square compared with embellishing a queen size quilt both seem to take about the same amount of time… forever…. luckily, I am having fun and enjoying each and every stitch.goddess on her quilt...

    jude definitely inspires! and as for the extra furoshiki- why not use them to wrap gifts and give away? i almost always wrap my gifts in shibori scraps these days and people love it!
