I realized not too long ago that I tend to do a lot of these little starter pieces. Then they sit, waiting for a home. And usually they do find a home eventually. Another of my beloved red prints. This time it is cotton from an old quilt top I pulled from a trash bin at a laundromat more than 30 years ago. That quilt top sat waiting too, until about 3 years ago when I began dismantling it and using the vintage scraps in my work.
Yes, Paula, the porcupine quills were once yours. How fun to be able to use them!
