A good friend of mine is going through a rough patch. She lives several states away so I cannot be a physically present help to her. But, I can do something for her, I can bend a rule.
My general rules for quiltmaking are as follows:
- Quilts that I make are to be used. I have never made a wall hanging quilt, I usually make bed/lap sized quilts and I want them to be used. I don't care if they fray, I can make another one.
- Most quilts are to commemorate a significant event. Now this rule is a bit tricky because I most often gift quilts on the occasion of a new birth, but I've given for other reasons.
- I make the rules; which means they are subject to be altered at my whim.
I followed the Oh, Fransson! tutorial here. I wanted it to be bright and cheery and possibly coordinate with her living room which is an asparagus green. I raided my stash and found a bright fat quarter bundle full of bright oranges and pinks and added to it as necessary.
|I obviously cannot follow simple instructions and need a cheat.|
Day Three: Ujima - Collective Work and Responsibility: I will use my energy to build and maintain my communities, to assist my brothers and sisters solve their/our problems together.
ETA: Delivered. She lurves it and it has already been installed. ~ksp
