Around Thanksgiving, my MIL was diagnosed with lung cancer and I wanted to make her a comfort quilt. I actually got it done before her treatments started!
I wanted something bright and colorful, but not too sickly sweet (coz she's so not that kind of a gal at all), so I decided to finally dip into my snow dyes. I know, right?
I cut several yards into strips and mixed them up and started sewing them all together.
|Till I had two large panels like this|
|Here was the really hard part...cutting it all up again...on the diagonal|
|Here are the new strips on the design wall|
|And here is the end result with some more snow dyed fabric for a border.|
I loved the finished quilt, but all that sewing on the bias was a bitch!! I might have to make one for myself...
