I’m late to the Blogger’s Quilt Festival (thank you Amy!)… but hey, I was making everyone pancakes. What a night… I don’t think anyone slept last night. But then, who sleeps at slumber parties? Really. I need a nap, and it’s only Day Uno of the party - and there’s lots more room for lots more NMG peeps.
So last Festival I cheated and showed two quilts. This Festival… I’m showing one. I’ve turned over a new leaf and am playing by the rules - and today I am good and on my best behavior (tomorrow I go back to my old disobedient and risqué ways… and don’t be surprised if you find zucchini in your apple pancakes - which of course I will deny).
Not just because I love the colors, or the fabric, or the quilt pattern… it’s because it’s my “Wonder Twin Super-Powers Activated” quilt. About 2½ years ago Pam surprised me with the cutest little bundle of some Windham fabric from her stash…
and unbeknownst to each other - we were each making a quilt from the SAME quilt pattern from the SAME little Japanese quilt book called “Square Patchwork” at the SAME time. Photo above is right after I made it - at my previous home - and apparently I was a much neater and organized person back then.
Book info: Square Patchwork ISBN4-8347-6441-9
It was all very Gift of Magi like - but Pam’s and my watches and hair survived unscathed. I have very, very, very little wall space in my teenie weenie studio… but this is one quilt that I will find space for so I can look at it every day. Everything gets moved around this quilt. What’s in front, beside, above and below is dictated by the quilt (like the birdie branch a friend made). Yup… WTS-PA rules the roost. At least the wall roost.
Ok… apple pancakes are just about ready!
