And now for something completely different

/ Tuesday, 8 March 2011 /
Indeed, this is completely different from the quilt I posted about yesterday!  This is a simple quilt made from charm packs - I used two charm packs of Maison de Garance and two of Bella Moda snow, with a border from a Rouenneries print.

It went together very easily - the hardest part was trying to settle on a layout, since HSTs can combine to form a near-infinite number of blocks.  Even more than I had ever considered, before I had a look at my second-hand bookstore score described here.  The one I finally picked wasn't even in the running when I asked for your help back in December.

I'm making this for a friend who's had a really horrible year.  She doesn't read this blog, and I hope it will be a pleasant and comforting surprise for her.  She truly deserves something much more substantially nice than a quilt, but we do what we can, right?
Hangin' out
On another note, this is International Women's Day, so I thought I would leave you with this short vidoe.  The message is sobering and not to lose sight of, but you get to see Daniel Craig in a dress.  Does he have nicer legs than you?  They're certainly nicer than mine!

Very powerful video. Thanks.

And I love the quilt! It looks fabulous. I often find charm-pack quilts look too scrappy for my taste, but not this one.

Very nice! Although it's not my usual style, I love this fabric line.
