It must be summer,
because my blue indigo "play cloth" has made it outside again, and this happens only in summer.
Those of you who have followed my blog for some time, might remember this one.
For my new followers - this is my summer project, which I "play with" only in summer, outside, in our lovely small garden. For the rest of the year it rests in its project box, right at the bottom of the pile.
What is it all about? It is a quilt with a difference.
The background is made from indigo dyed fabrics, of various sizes, and the idea is to fill each block with something different - be it embroidery, patchwork, applique.....
I have also included embroideries done by women from Tambani Project and Afghanistan Inspiration Project.
I got the inspiration for the quilt after a workshop with Tiggy Rawling some years ago. Most of the background fabrics came from her also.
This is how it looks so far - there are still many empty spaces to fill.
