red flimsy

Chain-piecing a checkerboard layout. Fun. Sewing the rows together horizontally first...


Still winter outside. This one feels like lots of girl power. I think Pippi Langstrømpe (Pippi Longstockings) is a suitable name. It's 40" by 54". Maybe I'll add a border, later. We'll see...


And my design wall is empty, again...

; )

Happy sewing!

Sometimes these very simple quilts are SO striking -- like this one. I like it a lot.

Pippi would be honoured, it's just as happy and strong as her!

A very nice thing this... I love red! Pippi would have added some totally unsuitable colors to it, I think... But she wopuld have liked this one very much.

Isn't it amazing how just the right fabrics and colors give the simple square shapes so much power and personality. Pippi would be proud!
