Hello and Happy Poetry Friday! Be sure to visit Kathryn Apel for a Down Under Roundup.
This month while the tv runs college football games, I've been piecing a quilt!
I realized a while back that I had quite a lot of black fabric in my stash. Black is not the most popular color to include in a quilt—which has made a black quilt project all the more enticing! I decided to use strips and construct squares on the diagonal—kind of a "crazy" quilt—and then arrange 4 squares to create some sort of funky block.
(I am not a precision quilter! More of an improvisational quilter, ala the Gee's Bend quilters.)
As I've been sewing, a name for the quilt popped into my head: "Midnight in the Garden of Good & Glorious."
No "evil" in this quilt! But lots of midnight. And my sweet friend Donna gave me some beautiful black-horse fabric, so I'll be incorporating it into the back— which I haven't figured out yet! I'll keep you posted.
In ArtSpeak: Animals news, I'm still having fun with Picasso. Today I have a sweet little elephant poem for you. Thanks so much for reading.
