6 x 6

Tsunamiquiltsquare

Here’s my square for the Tsunami Quilt project. The yellow rose is from some feedsack fabric and the background is some Marimekko fabric I’ve been saving. I so struggled with this project. I really wanted to do something more elaborate and, I don’t know, symbolic, evocative, meaningful? But I’m crap at embellishment. So here it is. Bright and simple. At least this way the Marimekko isn’t all mucked up with my poor embroidery/embellishment skills!

    Your work is truly gorgeous and so original. I love Oscar’s quilt. Just beautiful. I’m Trixie’s Grandma here in NC, Jenn told me to check out your lovely site and I’m so glad I did. I’ll visit again and look through more of your projects.

    Ellie,
    Thanks for the kind words! My Mom is so impressed that Trixie’s Grandma is visiting the site 🙂
    And thanks everybody for the affirmation of my quilt contribution! I’m so happy to be able to contribute to such a neat project. And I’m very inspired by everyone else’s squares. Check out the link Rosa left to the flickr site. They’re amazing!
