Some of the flowers from my N.H. garden.
I was looking for a quilt in a stack in the bathroom linen closet when I found this quilt. I know that I made it because of the quilting and the backing, but the front puzzled me. I didn’t remember making it. The colors are not my colors. Then I remembered that the orange and yellow bins were overflowing because I don’t usually use those colors. I took all the colors and fabrics that I didn’t like and put them in this quilt.
Then I couldn’t figure how I made the block. It must have been a technique that I learned because I have a gaa-bage piece with the same pattern.
It’s definitely not a mile a minute. After pondering this puzzle for a while, I remembered taking a class in Vermont with Linda McGehee. It was a pocketbook class where we made different textured fabric. I learned spiral piecing and other ways of creating texture with fabrics. I have Linda’s book and there it was. It is called Lattice Piecing. It is made by cutting and inserting strips several times. Each of the series of cuts is at a different angle. When I made this quilt, I must have put it into the closet, out of sight and forgotten.
Miss Molly has inspected the quilt and seems to like it.
Now that I have Linda’s book out, I should try some of her other techniques. That would be fun to do.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
