I got my mega 1/2-square triangle back from the quilters. Mega because it took a long time. And was lots of love. And I am thrilled with the result. It makes me very happy every time I look at it.
I love the colors – a jazzy rainbow. I love the shapes formed by the random placement of blocks. I have redone the quilt hanging on this wall three times now. I think I am finally happy enough to let it hang there for a long time.
I dream of a home that is spacious and new and simple. But I also am nostalgic for the house we live in now. Overflowing with books and records and fabric and funky. This quilt embodies that. It is just so darn cool.
This is by far the best thing I have ever made. I love that if you spend time and energy working on something, you get better at it. Such a simple concept, but so rewarding.
