It took me almost a year before I could start working on this quilt again.
I started it in a class with Shizuko Kuroha. Only antique Japanese fabrics are used. This class has been deeply moving for me. And quilting with these fabrics is almost like a spiritual experience.
I wanted to go back to piecing the top but couldn't. I don't know why. So I waited and suddenly, last weekend, I felt it was time.
I have now pieced 18 blocks.
I have also prepared a new pattern for 18 more blocks, cut fabrics and am trying to listen to them (or may be to me) to create the new blocks.
There will be a third series and then I will cut some on both diagonals to create another pattern.
Light is the name of this quilt and it is the perfect name for it.
Du grand Bleu !
