Here’s the last crafty thing I did for this year’s Gish . I did it in just half a day, so it’s reeeeally wonky!
It was for Item #73: Create a story quilt about 2020 for future generations. In keeping with the true experience of 2020, it should incorporate some burlap or other really rough material.
Some of you may know that I am just baaaaarely dipping my toes into the world of quilting. It’s something I’ve been super interested in for ages, but in general my crafting style is not at all precise, and lining up all those corners and edges and stuff is still super intimidating to me. For this project, though, I obviously didn’t worry about that. This is the result of no measuring, almost no planning, and just totally winging it. There’s also no actual quilting or even batting, but it’s patchwork, so that counts, right? Also, I’m sad you can’t see it, but the burlap is actually shiny, with gold thread worked through it. And it was VERY itchy to work with all afternoon/evening; lemme tell you!
