Some dear friends moved back into their house this weekend after a 6 month renovation. I went over for brunch today and decided that the house needed a small gift. I pulled out something I started in the Gee’s Bend workshop at Quiltcon and turned it into a small mat for their table.
The centre fabrics are old Japanese kimono fabric. My friend lived in Japan and speaks Japanese so it seemed appropriate for a small impromptu gift.
I just did improv piecing on the back and then did some quick stitch in the ditch and a few wavy quilting lines to finish it off. It’s not perfect but I like it and so did they.
