A productive day:making bread and soup, changing the sheets, ironing a heap of shirts - and finishing my honesty quilt started here. It's been through almost as many transformations as my numerous samples, toiles and trials. I like to take photographs as I go along, partly to document process and make decisions, partly to identify the point I go astray! Of the 4 different stages this sample went through I quite like the final product above but version 3 had more going for it. Should know by now not to fiddle!
Time to think about the next project - Tunisian Doors in African fabrics. The turquoise palette is now expanded further than when I took this photo thanks to Magie's latest trip to Ghana!
While looking for a title for my quilt, I found an interesting selection of quotes about honesty:
" The elegance of honesty needs no adornment"
"The true measure of life is not length but honesty"
"Where is there dignity unless there is honesty"
The wierdest: "Honesty is never seen sitting astride the fence"
