The Fearless Quilt came to be quite unexpectedly, as does the nature of some things. Divine Inspiration, being open to the muse, listening & actioning, being guided..... or simply following along a path (however wonky & meandering it has been & will be) that you set out on some time ago. It doesn't matter how a thing comes to you, I think what matters is how to receive it and what you do with it, and where you take it, and how you hold it.Read more
I'm going to call this my Fearless Quilt.
Because I am fearlessly doing it wrong,
Because I am using the precious special fabric,
because I am not measuring nor ironing (unless absolutely dire).
Because I am making it up as I go along, adding pieces here & there... some will be machine stitched together others will be hand sewn together. Some will have finished edges, others may have raw edges.
Because I am fearlessly hoping it'll be finished and ready to be enjoyed on our bed before Winter is here.... or even Autumn... could it be ready by then?
Day 1 -- I have narrowed that I will use mostly only blues & whites, with just a few pinkish additions. I will see how it goes. I think I've already run out of suitable fabric; so I will need another indigo vat and to dye more pieces, scraps, remnants......
but to begin is the best beginning >> without worrying too much about the end result, or the perfection of it all, or if indeed I have the right materials. Or more importantly if even I will finish it!
