And here I am, we are.
I kept going to complete the quilting all around the edge.
I met up with U. And Unicorn. I did a bit of quilting on U while I was there.
You can see, here at the bottom there are lots of empty spaces. And I have left spaces in the corners as well.
And that is not O , it is an unfinished Q.
Some of these fabrics are hard to stitch through, especially the ones in the dividers, but back then, that is just what I had and I had just begun to learn about thin cloth.
Someone asked if this quilt is for a boy or a girl, because there is a lot of pink. I thought about that. I did not think about that at all when I began it or now as I try to finish it. It is a blanket then, we all need to keep warm.
I would like Q to be for Quest, which might be a challenge to explain.
I can imagine a child someday questing … trying to match one bit of cloth with another of the same print or color … but Q is for Quilt seems such a perfect match for your way of going … perhaps a tiny sanity quilt, because who couldn’t use one of those?
yes, a tiny quilt floating in here is a must. I could tell many a story about that.
Et pourquoi pas ‘Quiet’ ? parce que cette courtepointe est un peu faite pour ça , non !?
et je regrette que la couleur rose soit attribué anormalement aux filles, car 1 de mes petits garçons demande toujours un peu de rose sur les pulls que je lui tricote…
et je me souviens de ma grand-mère qui teignait ses laines détricotées pour les ‘rafraichir’ , en faisait toujours un peu en rose pour faire quelques rayures sur les pulls de mon grand-père : c’étaient des sourires, disait-il 😉
Merci Jude pour tes belles choses et réflexions <3
Oh Quiet, how lovely, yes, and I love your sweater story… seems like I might be spending some time with Q stories.
I just love your alphabet quilt. So fun to see your progress on a special blanket for a special baby.
Funny how it wasn’t that until now.
I love the quilt and I love Soul-O, his beautiful furry silhouette. Soul-O and my cat spend lovely hours “just looking”. I do too now. Especially at the tree tops against the sky. So delicate and yet so strong.
Always loved the lin3s of treeless branches.
Interesting to read, i thought the whole time how beautiful you managed to have all colors on this blanket.
I really like how the warm caramel works with all the different colors. It says comfort and safety to me.
It is certainly a soup of many colors.
I think that, too, each time I see this cover as it’s being stitched together, Caro! Warm caramel is the perfect hostess!
Quest- paths, searching, journeys… wonderful thoughts to wish for a new soul. Blue’s first (and his favorite) baby blanket was “Rosie”- white with a print of little pinkish red rose buds.
My son loves pink pants.
A favorite moment, 9 yr old Blue meeting conservative cousin. Cousin said, “Your pants are purple!” Oblivious to the insult and without missing a beat, Blue said, “Actually, they’re maroon.”
how about a spiraling question mark for q, with a whispered “what if” embroidered inside it?…
YES! brilliant! Q uestion
and then….also Quest….which is a Question and also so
Now we’re cookin’
The Sentinel…..somebody has to do it. The quilt is lovely, and the additions super….love watching it grow.
Now the fun starts.
My kindergarten son had a favorite t-shirt that was a soft neon pink.
My favorite aunt and uncle, professors, gave my infant daughter a beautiful blue blanket.
Now days, gender-neutral seems to mean gray, beige, and dulled-down colors. Skirting around the fear of the feminine, me thinks. Hahaha!
Colors are my favorite. You make ‘coloring’ seem simple, but it’s not. This is a beautiful comforter.
I like the idea for a cloth to carry a full spectrum.
Yes. I like that.
Quest could show a road leading off into the distance with a question mark at the end.
Why not stitch or piece some of your beautiful 9 patches for Quilt?
Iwas thinking of a little quilt witin a quilt. Yes…
Gazing out on the world like a little guru. Plump and calm. So grateful for pets. Thankful for each comment that appears here as well as the posts … love all the words, all the stitches, all the cloths.
He got really chubby this year. Slowing down.
Quest…a good word indeed.
I used sheets for one of my first quilts, Mom too on one that she made for me that I have needed to mend. Makes such a difference. Quest is a wonderful world choice. Blue or pink…such a hot button topic in my world. 🙂 Love and warmth is what matters. Still cold here this morning, but not that cold!
cloth has it’s own nature, like people.
I think an all gender blanket is the best bet.
It’s really cold here, Wind makes it colder, at least te 7 feet of snow is way north. I like snow but….
Quintessential and quite lovely, this Unfinished Q and all of the Quilt…Pink, who cares for Boy or Girl, Baby!! 💕💙
Pink is a Color for Love and Calm.
Perfect for a Covering, dontcha think?
Cold here, Also…
Y is for Yeesh.
Perhaps a Knight on a Horse…or a Walking Wanderer…
I Love Faerie Tales, don’t You? 🤩
( I’m also Stitching Letters, so I’m getting a little Crazy…Ha hA!
I saw, your letters look great.
I love stories, there can always be one.
The quilting is lovely! I have older pieces with tough fabrics too and sometimes (because of how I work), three or four layers. Don’t love stitching through them anymore.
I can’t really. I am going to cut through the back now and then to thin it out.
the alphabet soup never ceases to surprise…something new, something there, something added….
A place where stories never end!
Whether little girl or boy…the stories will always delight. They may even change into other stories, too.
A quilt which keeps Giving.
Doesn’t get much better than that:)
