The future depends on what we do in the present.
The top is sewn but it's not a good finish. Some of the values are too dark/strong. The main diagonals should be the only dark points.
You'll also note it's symmetrical. Most of my quilts are. Kaja's challenge is timely. I need to push myself to try asymmetrical arrangements... soon.
I may or may not rework this. The top half is definitely lighter than the bottom. A good example of what happens when we don't pay enough attention to value. Fortunately there's a bunch of sewing piled up so I have time to ponder.
It's so hot that a wrap skirt is the coolest clothing I can imagine. A wrap dirndl was the first thing my mother showed me how to sew. Fortunately I could remember the basic instructions and it only took a couple of hours.
The Kaffe fabric has been in my stash several years. The bright, splashy daisies feel like summer.
When Beverly Cleary passed away this spring, I remembered how much my children liked her books, especially The Mouse and the Motorcycle. I reread it and still enjoyed the story even more now that we've spent time in California.
Next I read one of her autobiographies, A Girl from Yamhill, which covered her early life until she left for college. She was a beloved only child but also had serious issues with her mother as a teenager. It was unpleasant to read how her mother pushed her into a relationship with a man in his twenties when she was still in high school. Good to read she gave him his marching orders.
Enjoy the day, Ann
