Square 17 is the second corner, again made from four smaller squares. I love the lines in the lower right square so I quilted around them to accentuate, and extended the lines into the neighbouring squares. Connecting paths.
The lower left square is made from a lovely piece of silk noil laid over some hand-dyed cotton fabric. The edge is deliciously ragged.
I’ve been working on something else over the weekend but it’s not quite ready to meet the world yet. It has a purpose, but it needs a name. It will be a keeper, of sorts, althouth I don’t think I want to call it a keeper. [The word ‘keep’ comes from an Old English word cepan, meaning ‘to observe’ – whence Dickens speaks of Scrooge ‘keeping’ Christmas. I like etymology.]
