Patchwork

on October 4, 2009

I finished this quilt a while ago, but it’s finally breaking in.  Sometimes it’s takes flannel a little while to warm up to it’s full snuggly potential.  

 

Flannel Quilt Side A

It’s a rag quilt.  But it’s not only a rag quilt…

Flannel Quilt Side B

It’s reversible.  

Now that the mercury is dropping this quilt is getting a lot of play.  It’s small enough and portable enough to go to campfires and sit outside, but it also sits on the bed most days, too.

Apple Detail

I wanted to get better with my quilting skills and thus made each of the 90 squares a different quilted pattern.

Leaf Detail

A leaf.

Quilt Detail

Vines

Beet detail

This is my personal favorite square – a beet.  Beets have slowly taken on great symbolic meaning in my life.  So much so, in fact, that the very word is engraved on the inside of my wedding band.  

 

Flower detail

A warm reminder of sunnier times.

Fiddle Detail

The inspiration for each block came from my everyday life.  I love looking at it and thinking of what each one means.  This, in particular, is a reminder to learn the play that fiddle in our basement.
