We live under a track of flying crows. Each dusk and dawn they pass our house. A ruddy crowd, and sometimes loud too. Too many to count, and yet of some order. They have inspired the name for my latest finished quilt:
my crows are 55" * 70", machine quilted in simple zig zags across on quilters dream request (thin) cotton batting
For me, the recycled shirts gives this quilt an everyday, casual and simple beauty. Nothing fancy. The black fabric really helps showing up the dust and cat hair... Absolutely not of heirloom quality, but a good utility lap quilt for me. The back is a wider cotton from IKEA, in less than quilters cotton quality. And I am considering giving it some more quilting, as the sparse quilting is already broken in a few places. Probably too much tension on the thread when in use. As for now the quilted lines are about 3" apart. Considering adding some hand quilting. Might have to wait as I am finishing up my three other partly hand quilted quilts, first.
This sunday is the first day of summer time, and I am happy to capture a sign of spring in the garden:
Wish you a lovely sunday!
