Whew, I made it! I hate being late to the party, but considering I had to bind this before a proper photo shoot and then write the post, I'm quite proud of myself for getting it all done on the first day of the festival.
I made this wall hanging for my cousin's dorm room. She's planning to double major in biomedical engineering and discrete mathematics. I asked her for a 3-6 letter word that I could sew into a piece of fabric art for her room, I was thinking something cheerful along the lines of "hope" or "dream" so I was a bit surprised when she said "logic" or "entropy". I told her I'd do "logic" because it has less seams..
I made her pillows in the same colorscheme last year. It's my grand plan to help her make a matching quilt for her first apartment after graduation (but that's still a ways off..). I like making mini quilts like this (and this one I made for Shannon) because they go together in no time and provide quick pick-me-ups for the recipient. It's a nice way for people to know I love them.
One of the neat things about finishing this project in a rush today was that I found a new space in my house to take good quilt photos! I just taped this to the closet door in the guest room and poof! I set the timer and took a bunch of pics of me under the quilt, but my assistant kept moving the camera at the last second. The "logical" solution? Grab the kid to get in the photo. :)
As I was sewing down the binding I thought that maybe I'm getting tired of that particular shade of green.. but then I realised I was wearing it, and it's the same color I painted my living room, so.. I guess subconciously it's just one of those colors that I'll always come back to. Do you have any colors like that?
