Quite perverse, really, that I have a cupboard full of luscious hand-dyed fabrics in every colour imaginable, and what I really want to work with at the moment is white. It always amazes me that there are so many shades of white, and that those shades are always changing depending on the colour of the light.
This will be a square quilt, made from nine 12″ blocks of layered patchwork:
I plan to cover the seam fronts with strips of pieced 1″ squares, in not-quite-whites – very pale pastels and neutrals – and perhaps a pieced border. I’m thinking today about a good friend whose mother died recently, and about how white always manages to bring a quiet peace.
