Haiku 11 and Learning Herringbone Pattern

11.

November 26, 2017

White birches in the
Winter woods seem like ice spikes
Piercing the sky bowl.

 

Here’s my first attempt at making Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s herringbone pattern—from her new book MODERN QUILT MAGIC.  It uses 2 by 8-inch strips.  This SAMPLE  has been trimmed to make a pillow.  For right now I’m just putting this sample into the Parts Department box.  Lord knows I do NOT need any more pillows in my house!!!

And I learned what I need to know.

I do think that I will use this pattern to make a Cotton+Steel low volume lap quilt—a project I have longed to make for some months now.

Beneath white snow sky

Cold-frame planted with seeds

Promise of green spring
