A friend was wanting a Samoan baby quilt and was wondering if I had one on hand....I told her I didn't but could make one quick. I did but with no strings attached because I could just put it in my store...which I did...she wants it more Samoan looking. No big deal, I am easy but I tell my husband that I am not that easy.
As I was pulling out fabric, the many ideas took several twist and turns, going back and forth to my husband....then finally deciding on the colors above. Deciding to do a nine patch with a sashing but once again it took a turn for just the checker board look. It was amazing to me what a rush I got out of the process and watching it all come into play. Making the fabric sing and boy was it singing. This is just a simple pattern, many have done it before me so it is no big deal.....the big deal is the process of creating, the thinking, wondering how it would look this way or that way. I think that is why most of us do what we do, it is the process, the love affair with fabric. You take away my fabric and I am lost.
Enough of my mutterings....below is the back to the quilt.
