."...dog-eat-dog world of quilting, this is a hot topic."
.Nancy Zieman has lots of guests that share a seeming Plethora of designs
.ideas. For my part, I couldn't exactly copy a quilt if I wanted to- it
.become an exercise in Production Seam Ripping!...
Wow, Ray, you blew me away with that post! Talk about unplumbed depths!
I love the idea of the Morse code...I'm finishing up my husband's 25th
anniversary quilt (which started as a wedding present quilt), and have been
racking my brain for an appropriate border - my plan has been to free motion
write every place we've lived and every important date I can think of -
perhaps adding in a bit of Code would be good - he's a rabid ham!
On coffee quilts - I had thought of using that. If you put coffee beans
under fabric and then dye it you get some interesting texture. Or, you
could use them as a resist. What I had planned for Tom's pictures was to
use the terrific colors and shapes from the Yemen rooftops with the drying
cherries on top. And then again, I do a lot of work with printing with
leaves. If I had some fresh coffee leaves I could work those in somehow...
I used to hang at a coffee shop owned by a gorgeous guy named Joe. I have
always wanted to do something with that - like, as in, "Drink at Joe's" .
I no longer put my quilt designs up on my blog. I got upset a few years
ago, when I posted a picture of a commissioned wall hanging (original
design, also commissioned) and got a note as follows: "I love your quilt and
I know you won't mind that I used your design and made one just like it for
my own church!"...yeah.
Off to perfume the air with roasting coffee. Tell me why on earth roasting
in the garage makes my closet smell good?
