I made this top last spring. Over the years i collected antique workmens shirts, the kind of fabric is a little sturdier than nowadays shirts. A soft glow comes from the oranges and my beloved holy virgin blue. I had great fun making them; still a lot leftovers so i go on hunting this kind of shirts.
Today was the magical days i realised that spring is not so far away, the light has changed, bright sun, still very cold but i like that, so had a long walk.
Tonya was still here when we both looked at this top and she mentioned that the charm would have been greater if the blocks would have been made in a slightly more uneven way, the Gwen Marston way. And you were right Ton, i will do so in a future top!
A public transport strike made things difficult for a lot of working people, i'm lucky girls, time for sewing now!
Three options for finishing: just ticking,normal quilting, or a rustic quilting with thick thread, any suggestions?
