When I first began making this project I thought I would be making a nice little neat, yet still unmeasured, quarter circle patchwork. I had plans to arrange it into a pattern. It was going to look consistent! I wanted to just make one quilt like that, just once at least, and thought if it is small and just a little bit improvised then I could hack it. Well, my plans faded when I got to piecing the blocks. But, actually I think what happened is pretty exciting.
I am really into this whole mini quilt thing right now. This one is exciting as I can see the possibilities of using the same ‘pattern’ in a larger quilt. Those areas of royal blue negative space, oh it just gets me going! I almost did keep going with this one, but talked myself out of it which is good because I just don’t need yet another quilt top staring at me wanting me to choose it next.
This mini quilt has not been labelled yet, but I will do it in the same way as my first mini and quilt it into the front. I recently went to do some quilt archiving at a museum and NOBODY LABELLED THEIR QUILTS. It was frustrating. I’m not saying that my quilts will be put into a museum, but maybe if the Victorian quilters knew their stately home and all their possessions would be turned into a museum someday in the future they might have labelled their stuff. You never know, so label your quilts and the future archival team will be most pleased!
