Indigo Farm Quilt
All I can say about 2020 is I feel so lucky to be healthy and wish the same for all!
I quilted and sewed a lot in the earlier months of this year. My Indigo Farm started with a Moda Indigo Charm Pack. I used the charm pack and some scrap grunge to make hourglass blocks. They represent fields at the farm. Some dark navy Gunge and a denim/chambray blue provided background for Sashiko blocks. It was an enjoyable time slow stitching the farmhouse, trees and stream, and the daikon radish patch. A fun make overall. It got quilted and finished Jan/Feb. During that time I was also trying to learn a new drawing program. The hardest part of pattern making for me is drawing diagrams and applique shapes on the computer or tablet. While I decided not to create a pattern for this design, I did manage to get some very simple drawings done of the stream, gate and radish patch. Line drawings are here for you to download if you'd like to try some Sashiko.
I used a photo of a young Japanese maple along side our driveway to create this tree.
