I found a delicious new (to me) fabric shoppe in the Delano District where I spent two hours and a few hundred dollars re-supplying my stash. The ladies at Material Girls Quilt Shoppe helped me find the backing for the red and purple quilt. I discovered these “Bali Pops”. Pre-cut packages of forty 2-1/2″ strips of batik with a color theme like “Green Tea” and “Sangria”. I must have really liked them because I bought four.
“Blue Hawaiian” was the name of the one I chose first. I cut random lengths, mixed them up, and sewed them back together in a continuous loop. Much like you see in a braided rag rug.
It was fun and mindless. It is a moving meditation for me to sew and sew and sew without an agenda.
It ended up measuring 38 by 80. An oddly shaped oblong lap quilt perhaps? Maybe a throw for the foot of the bed.
I think the icy blues and violets may trick you into feeling cooler.
