I finished sewing the last side of the border on and was still sort of stunned to realize: We The Purple is a flimsy! I'd been working on her for a long time, gradually and slowly, and enjoying every bit of the process. And now she is finished, but doesn't quite fit on my wall! She's folded up and waiting for the right recipient and then it she'll be quilted and bound.
Yes, "she." Usually I think of quilts as "it." Sometimes "he" (remembering Big Jake -- now that was definitely a male quilt!). I think this is the first time, though, that a quilt has been a "her" throughout. Anyone else think like this about her quilts?
I was under the influence of Wanda throughout the making of this quilt. No doubt about it. She'd prolly find it a bit tame, but I think she'd like it anyway.
This was made from two Bali Pops. I have a great group of "neutral" batik strips (if that isn't an oxymoron) that I actually bought from Wanda during her virtual yard sale and I know exactly what I'm going to do with them. Have some other things to finish up, though, before I can start. Stay tuned!
