I have been doing a bit of sewing in my rearranged sewing room. Last month when my friend Sandra visited for a couple of days, she brought me some fabric from her friend's fabric shop, Over the Rainbow. The package was called a "layer cake" which I suppose is a take off on the "jelly rolls" that are often sold, or the "charm packs". None of these can be found in Japan... Anyway, just a lovely assortment of fabrics but I didn't know what to do with them.
Then I also threw out the question to blogging visitors about what is the easiest quilt to make for prayer and charity quilts and many of you commented that the Disappearing Nine-Patch was an easy and impressive pattern to make. SOOOO... I got out the roller cutter and cut my layer cake into quarters and did a quick Disappearing Nine-Patch.
Truly an easy quilt to make! And fun! And for myself the colors are beautiful and exciting. Yes, I will be making this quilt again. But maybe I'll combine some of bright fabrics with some solids. I keep coming back to my theory that Japanese don't or won't like all these bright colors and combinations. Well, I make prayer quilts with what I have at hand and this is this month's result. I still have a lot more blocks so next month's prayer quilt will be much the same...
And yes... It is not about the quilts. It is about the prayers.
