In the fall of 2013, I began this quilt by block printing fabric with linoleum blocks, carved in plant and vegetable motifs. I dyed some of the fabric, bought a little bit more, but mostly I used scraps that I already had. It's the first time I designed a quilt completely in triangles and really enjoyed their playful design potential. The quilt is for my mother and father-in-law, and since I only hand quilt for those I love, the quilting portion took a very long time. I'm grateful for two recent incidences, a bad head cold and slipping on the ice, that allowed me some dedicated couch potato time--seeing me through the binding. I love this quilt more than anything I've ever made, am very proud of it, and like really good novels, I hated to get to the last stitch. I hope you will enjoy it Pete and Mary!
