I started work on Kaffe Fassett’s “Earthy Mitered Squares” quilt pattern, from “Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts: 23 Original Quilt Designs.” While his interpretation is indeed “earthy,” I have to admit, once I got to the quilt shop I learned that my own Earth is a bit louder than Kaffe’s.  I am also learning how to use Photoshop. You may need sunglasses.

That is not all, there is more to my story. This was just the first of (ok, now I have to get up and count them) 17 different striped fabrics I get to chop up and sew together.

Mark asked me, approximately “why are you making this quilt?” I believe I responded “I don’t know.” I’m still trying to figure it out, but I think Thomas Knauer makes an excellent point about this, sort of, on his blog.
