King of Beasts, originally uploaded by wordnerd411.

There’s a Gee’s Bend flavor to this, the first quilt I designed myself. I am not, and never will be, a technician! The center is from an English t-shirt, much loved gift from Grandpa, which started falling apart.

I did not know about stablizer, I could only make the quilt fit by working with 2″ squares. The blue L round the lion was how I evened the center up to be able to surround with the other squares. i had next to no stash. The blue is deconstructed thrifted capris my DXH made me buy to wear in Florida and the turquoise and yellow is a thrifted dirndl skirt from the 60s I would guess.

Made in 1998.
