Cozy Mel

Cozy Mel,
hand dyed and commercial cottons, machine pieced, machine quilted, as you go. 74.5x76.5"


I tried several different orientations, and one is as good as another, so I just shot this version because the border was more visible. Happy to have this finished, and my back healing up finally. It made quilting it a delay-filled process. I could only do four or five hours at a time, and then had trouble standing up after sitting in one place for so long. It's horrible to get old!




Thinking I could get better actual color outdoors, I tried hanging it with skirt hangers from a curtain rod. It was raining, and windy, so I didn't have good luck until I brought it back inside and pinned it to my wall.

There is a lot of unintentional wonkiness to the quilting, but you don't notice it when you are five feet away, on a galloping horse.

  2. What fun! Wonkiness? ehh...who cares? I love the asymmetry and the way it looks on the bed.

    "Getting old is not for sissies." I'm going to go see if I can find out who originated that.

  5. Real springtime colours. Should be reds and oranges and yellows and browns where we are...but our turn will come. BTW...I can't ride horses for nuts...and still struggle to see wonkiness!

  14. YIKES! It took me ages to see the snake! I saw what I expected to see ... a piece of coiled rope! I presume it is harmless, or your Knight in shining armour would have been called to help... am I correct?

    I love the quilt, the unevenness makes it, IMHO.
    Hope the back is 100% very soon.
