It has been a while since my last post. Like everyone else, I have been busy doing, making and being. I packed Christmas in all of its bins yesterday, so it is now time to catch up.
I enjoy using these solid-colored squares (left over from this project). I like how their teetering composition is echoed in the column of suspended chairs. The skewed quilting adds to the sense of imbalance.
On the back, I used more of the squares to create a sturdy column. The bold grey and white fabric is a scrap bit from the backing of Daughter #2’s bedroom quilt. I didn’t want to cover up the top part of the column with a hanging sleeve, so I used extra sections of the binding to create loops. I think this hanging system works well with a mini-quilt.
I forgot to measure it before I gave it to Laurie, but I think the dimensions were approximately 12″ x 14″–diminutive and charming like Laurie.
