Detail of the silks, so shimmery.
It's been a busy wet week here at Chez Johnson. Rain kept us indoors, much to the pups' dismay. But then weather has been horrible everywhere, and one doesn't have to shovel rain, so nevermind.
We have a guest staying for a while: my sister Brooke!
This is so fun for me, and we installed her in my studio. That meant clearing a space and finding new spots for lots of my stuff. Since this will be happening in our move, it is a good exercise in decluttering and finding out just exactly what I have, where.
It was actually quite easy to reconfigure half my studio and bring in a dresser, twin bed and chair/ottoman. And now she gets to use my many twin quilts, which is a bonus. No doggies allowed.
To prove that I could still work in that room, I got out my fabric, made this piece and then put all the fabric away as tho nothing had happened. Now you see it, now you don't.
This quilt began with my fave combo of colors, purple, orange and green. One can't go wrong with these. Add a little pink, red and yellow and zing, it all works.
