3 To Go

The big segments test my patience and my machine motor...
yet their beauty pleases me.
Thoughts on palimpsest: 
the sleeve of a man's white cotton shirt (the base fabric) retains its presence by its shape. 
Recycling...my fabrics have the patina of age...like me.

Just so pretty! I love that little red/white striped shirt piece--could this be an oxford :--)) shirt? Someday someone will be tracing the "roots" of this quilt--wouldn't you like to see what they come up with? Beautiful...Julierose

I'm thinking it's mostly shirt & blouse fabrics, but at least 15 years old or more. I suppose I should try to show this one, if ever I get it done...

Beautiful stitching. Patience pays! I love your design and combination. And I love the idea of "adding on" - one day.... also I will..... it is the direction which I want to take.
