The first row of the Bauhaus quilt is here. It was rather quickly done, because I used the korak method: Fold a piece and pin it to the carrier fabric (an strip of an old bed sheet). One side is folded, one is open. Put the next folded piece onto the cut side of the patch, so that only a folded edge is visible. Connect parts with a hem stitch along the folded line. I showed this method here.
I started quilting, but it might be wiser to do this when a number of strips will be finished. Then I will find the proper combination of strips. Quilting this might turn it into an infinite project... But I want to make a cosy quilt for my beloved hubby before winter is over.
The wool fabric from my husband's jacket is wonderful to work with. I should cut more suits into pieces.
I have to tell you a little story. When I was a kid of 3 or 4, I loved scissors. And I had access to them. My parents had the confidence that I would learn to handle safely what I learnt to use early. But one afternoon when I was put to bed for a nap, I applied this wonderful tool on my stockings (yes, at that time, also children wore wool stockings with clips to hold them up), and I was attracted by the little bulbs the clips had left behind, and cut them off. Then I started working on a new unused fabric that was hanging from the rail of my kid's bed and started cutting out the lovely scenes of playing and reading children that were printed on the cloth. That was when my Mom came in and interrupted a quilter's career for decades.
Update on J's job. The same company as I mentioned on Tuesday offered him a job which is exactly what he used to do. Same money, same responsibilty, familiar subjects. We are so happy! Thanks to all of you who sent kind thoughts and who crossed fingers for him!
