Dijanne Cevaal has thrown a challenge out!
"So..... i would like to throw out a challenge- is anyone out there willing to follow the KISS principle?( KISS- Keep it Simple Stupid)- make a 50 cm square quilt using only two coloured fabrics ( or white for that matter) and threads ( as many colours as you would like) but using only straight stitch by hand or machine- no fancy stitches- of course straight stitching can be done in any form- and absolutely no embellishing- just fabric and stitch and your imagination!"
Well I grabbed that challenge with both hands and ground to a complete halt! I had a vague idea - whole cloth? maybe? Not sure! The last week I found the most amazing drawing on Pam Holland's blog. I hope she doesn't mind, but I've used that drawing as my inspiration for my Kiss quilt. I'm using a piece of fabric that I have been patting and stroking for months - a piece of rich cream 50 - 50 cotton/silk. It is so much fun to just "cut loose" with the sewing machine.
I started to make my Kiss quilt this week. You can see a liitle of the work I have done, it's just a peek! I put the quilt on the ironing board while Icleaned up the kitchen after dinner and look what I found when I got back! He was the prettest stick insect I've ever met! I think he was just as curious about me as I was about him. I finally had to move him outside because he wasn't going to move on his own.
