I have had pieces of a Planet Patchwork quilt called Chaos Harmony hanging on my design wall for months. It is an old UFO that I should have kept up with when the free pattern was posted on the internet. But there were a lot of mistakes in the pattern, and I lost interest. I have lost interest again and taken the pieces down. I have been going through drawers trying to clear things out and I came across a top with photographs of quilters. I had plans for it that don'e excite me anymore. But I cut out the photographs and I am going to try something different. Some of the pictures are antique, others are modern pictures that I took myself. I made them all sepia, I think. I do know that at some point I tea dyed them to get them all the same shade. Anyway, I remembered that fabric that I recently purchased. Moda "Think Pink". Which is a fabric that is so not me, but I liked it anyway. I think that I will fill the spaces around the photos with blocks. Traditional, maybe just some squares. I think I can make this quilt look special. There is a photograph of a quilter's hands on this quilt. I really like that photo.
