Turkey Tracks: Bright Quilt

Bright Quilt

The snow is flying outside.

The predicted storm is coming on in.

It’s been bitterly cold for the past three days, and I have stayed home.

But I have been quite happy inside working on a VERY BRIGHT quilt for the past two days and listening to the last of Watership Down, which I downloaded from our library’s collection of audio books.

The setting inspiration of setting simple 9-patch blocks into a BRIGHT fabric:  Bonnie Hunter’s “Sisters Nine Patch” found in her Adventures with Leaders and Enders.



The middle rows are being sewn together at the sewing machine.

Here’s a close-up of one block, because I LOVE the neutral fabric I’m using and wanted you to see it.  Flags Flying…







Here’s the focus fabric and two other fabrics I will use.


Loved on sight these bright boat sails.

The bright cherry red will be a narrow border.  I will use the boat sails both as a front border and as backing.  The blue stripe will be the binding and will be cut on the bias.

I think this quilt will be called something like “Sails Up and Flags Flying.”

And now I’m going to eat some lunch and make some soup for dinner.  Then I can sew, sew, sew!
