Somos Quilt

Somos Quilt

This quilt is headed for Project Somos in Guatemala, where the kid who picks it will get to keep it for life.

The piecing started three or four years ago, as leftovers from what became Yared’s quilt. About a year ago I took my pile of scrappy squares and cut them down to 6 x 6 squares. Creating a grid tamed the chaos just enough to make me think all these colours and prints could work together.

Some of the fabric (including some liberty prints) is left over from the nine bow ties and 100 napkins I made for our wedding. There are polka dots from a dress I modified, and thrift store odds-and-ends. The borders are made of light wool and linen suiting fabric from the garment district.

I hope one day I’ll get to see a picture of the quilt with it’s new owner.
