Okay, this seems really odd to me, but I HAVE to share a dream I had last night. Of course it was quilt related. First I saw two hexagon quilts. These weren’t like the hexagon quilts over at the Great Hexagon Quilt Along.
One of them was a nine patch quilt, but the middle horizontal row was hexagons instead of squares. I don’t know how it was done, but it was cool.
The second hexagon quilt was even cooler. And whoever made it was giving it to me — except it was only 3/4 of the way finished, so I was hesitant to take it. This quilt was a scoop of mint ice cream in a sundae dish with chocolate and something else sprinklish or cherryish on top. Some how the piecing in the quilt was larger hexagons.
The next thing I saw wasn’t a quilt, it was a pair of socks. (I went to a local yarn shop yesterday, so I’m pretty sure that’s where this one came from.) Anyway, the socks were bar codes.
Yes, that kind of bar code. The numbers were around the top of the sock, and then there were vertical black strips on the ankle of a white sock. How’s that for whimsical.
The last scene I witnessed while sleeping was a show and tell. I only saw one quilt. It was a family tree quilt of sorts. The lady had several children. There was one fruit (apple, peach, etc) shaped quilt for each child about the size of a 12″ quilt block. Up near the stem where the leaves would be was a cluster of small appliqued circles. On each circle was a picture of a member of the child’s family. The separate pieces of fruit (each child’s quilt) were then sewn together at the edges to create a table runner linking the families together.
How’s that for random? Feel free to take any of those ideas and run with them. I sure won’t be. Way too complicated!
