Earlier this summer I introduced you to the wool Tailor’s quilt. After procrastinating for all these months, I took a deep breath and cut into the quilt. I cut about a 1/6th section out of it at a corner, that makes it a workable size of 24″ x30″. Then cut the front and back apart giving me two pieces of patchwork.
I’ve chosen the upper one to work on. Predominently golds, greens and a few purples thrown in. The patchwork was interesting from the back, the seams were so raveled but the fabric was fresher looking in color and texture. I was tempted to turn things upside down and make the backside the front.
But what changed my mind was this stain:
When I looked more closely at it, and then placed my hand over it, its identity was known….a long fingered hand reaching reaching out from the past. Hmmmm, must somehow make a connection.
