Fabrics used: Hand Dyes
Completed May 2012
This quilt was made with Indigo Shibori fabrics that a friend made (the blues) and hand dyes that I made (the reds).
My friend Wendy Pulsifer made not only the Indigo fabrics from the blocks, but also the border Indigo and the backing was made by Wendy as well! I had the Indigo fabrics for a long time before I found the perfect pattern for the quilt. The pattern, Anita’s Arrowhead seemed to be perfect once I added a red hand-dye to it (which was an adventure to dye!).
I named this quilt “A Little Patience” because I definitely needed a little patience to work on it. Between the bias edges of each block, the new quilting technique I used, and the running out of fabric for binding just as I was about to bind it… it screamed for me to be patient!
I want to thank Wendy for encouraging me to finish this particular quilt for the show and the gift of the backing fabric!
