At some point my brain decided it wanted to make an all gold quilt. It could have been when I was going through the studio looking for things to donate to the Little Free Craft Library up the hill and found that I had a fair amount of gold cloth. Yes, that must have been it. At the time I said I would call it "Silence" (care for a pun anyone? and how about you?). When I started cutting it up and laying it out I saw the blues in the printed fabric, so I started pulling out the Japanese woven cotton in blues for contrast. It wouldn't be all gold, after all. The quilt had spoken.
I watched an interesting video on making bojagi (Korean wrapping cloth), and decided to use that kind of stitching to piece it together, which I believe is also known as "reversible seams," "flat fell seam," "flat-felled seam," or "felled seam." I learned about "pinch stitching" as well, but decided not to employ it. The piecing floated free, but I wanted a backing, then I wanted to sandwich in some words, then I wanted to cut a few holes in the backing so light could come through here and there, then I wanted to quilt it a little with the free motion foot. Sheesh, so much going on: a quilty party stew. I enjoy sewing bindings, so the finished quilt has a finished edge. (The yellow printed section in the binding says "I Heard You.")
