I'm in love with this quilt. It reminds me of black licorice and cotton candy, or of Good and Plenty candies, so sweet they makes your teeth hurt and delicious to eat in the dark of a movie theater.
The blocks were pieced on my treadle machine with some 5 x 5" squares Debra sent me, with some of my fabrics thrown in for good measure. When I finished the blocks I took them upstairs to the sewing room, where I organized them on my design wall, and sashed and bordered them on my modern Janome, which is way more accurate.
For the border I had a very special piece of black and white print which I bought at IPQF a few years ago. I didn't quite have enough to go all the way around because it looked like the 1-yard piece had been cut in the dark with a hack saw--don't you hate it when that happens?--so I substituted a related print on the bottom.
Here's a close up. I think those blue cornerstones make everything pop.
Have a great weekend. If the new version of Jane Eyre opens in my area, I'll go to the movies. I hope they have Good and Plenty at the theatre.
