Dear Jane K-1 Crooked Creek
Crooked Creek gave me no trouble at all. It was a nice, straight-forward, paper-pieced block, and those long verticals keep it from being the pinning nightmare it might otherwise have been. Thanks, Jane! I like this fabric too. It's a nice true orange, with lots of interesting things going on. Orange is one of the color ways I'm really trying to stretch. I want to use everything from vibrant orange to orange brown, to pale yellow orange. The last thing I want is the orange "trip" to stand out like the outline of a yield sign in the middle of the quilt.
I'm enjoying being back in blog land. I could go into a poor pitiful Pearl litany about real life quilting buddies, but I'll spare you the drama. On the bright side, it makes heading off to my solitary sewing studio very pleasant; maybe I'm just too much of an introvert.
