Vof vof vof dear friends! It’s scrappy time! This time we made really small scraps from our little fabric pieces. They were for a special occasion and this quilt was packed with them…
Hmmm, I haven’t changed much these last years. This quilt was made some years ago. I never slept with it and thought that one day it may find a good home.
Because I couldn’t go to find a card and I use to make things on my own, I had to find an idea for a card … that was difficult. But then something started to ‘come out’. I cut circles, tiny as a finger nail. Lots of colours, not exactly same size of shape … as the years are in our lives. Some are more colourful, some less, some bigger, some smaller.
Eighty circles for my father’s 80 years. I hope his years has been as colourful as the circles …
I was thinking to cut numbers 8 and 0 on the cover of the card so that circles inside would show through them, but then understood that I couldn’t do that well and would just distroy the whole thing.
So many colourful years didn’t find space enough to be in lines and rows, so they flew randomly on each others.
‘Orange Stones’ quilt has always been one of my favourites! I like the simple pattern which shows the fabrics well.
Also these fabrics have been my favourites … I think now I have used even the last little scrap of them.
In that time Foxy was still with us … hmmm those happy days … we were a good gang!
Foxy was my sweetheart and Hanna is my dear sister (not real sister).
This quilt got the name from the stones I crocheted that time.
I hope this quilt gives sunshine to my father, cheers him up and brings him lovely memories from Crete. Happy birthday, father! and many many more colourful years!
