From Joanne's precious box of fabrics and UFO's.
The brown and tan/rose patchwork were part of a piece with applique interest - that will most likely show up later in another project. I cut apart the patchwork and inserted the strips of beige animal fabric. A totally different look - I'm in love. The back is yellow gingham.
Quilting is that increasingly larger rectangular spiral that I'm currently drawn toward. 36" x 40".
There is something so intriguing in using Joanne's carefully and beautifully executed but never finished creation and making a 180 degree turn. I feel confident that she was never thinking of a baby quilt.
I wish I'd taken a picture of her original piece. Next time.
