My school uniform was brown, being fair haired I suit brown. And back in the 1990s I bought rather a lot of brown fabric. It has malingered in the roof space for more or less 20 years and reappeared recently to have another stab at my modern maples quilt. In the 1998 it was my falling maples quilt, now in 2015, still unfinished it is my modern maples quilt. Nearly finished. Put on a real surge for Le Challenge earlier in the year, but it needs another row or two.
|Modern Maples Quilt,|
this old chestnut you're probably thinking
But brown is creeping back, my partner for my #ukminieasyswap likes brown. It seems she likes traditional browns and oranges, not modern brown browns and oranges. Not a problem. I have brown to share. I'm making her a tote, and it is coming along.
This month's Le Challenge is "wilderness". This is my chance to reintroduce brown into society. Brown is coming out of the wilderness years, like Winston Churchill back in the 1930s. Come to speak of it, they liked a lot of brown then too. My plan, by Wednesday is to make a quilt top out of these brown fabric strips. Perhaps.
This surely is sewing from my stash.
