I spy my little 'i'...

A long time ago, August 2012 to be more precise, I responded to a request for help on a collaborative quilt by Mister Thomas Knauer.

I duly made my secret block, along with 120 other folks, sent them to the US of A, and that was that, until now...


Now if you are not a follower of Thomas' blog, you may still know his fabrics, currently his new book is hopping about blogland, and he is even residing over this side of the pond; if you are in the Cambridge area - check this out!

Thomas is, let's say, a wordy chap.  He has opinions, lots of opinions.  I don't think I have ever disagreed with his point of view; sometimes I don't understand it, but mostly, and I am going to be honest here, I don't have enough hours in my day, sorry Thomas!  But if you have taken a Look inside on Amazon, or seen any of the blog hop reviews and photos, you will have to agree that he designs and makes amazing and beautiful quilts.

So digressing already; it was a lovely surprise to see his new blog header and photos from the book where my long forgotten block could be seen...


Did anyone else contribute to this quilt?  I think it is rather fab to play a teeny tiny part in something bigger, and its always fun to play 'i' spy...

I've neither been asked to, nor paid, not even in kind/fabric nor books to post this, I am just bigging-up my little part, and why shouldn't I!? xxx

  7. Wow, fantastic quilt! There is always something special about collaborative projects, I think it is the mix of fabrics; most people struggle to be that eclectic on their own! I love the way Thomas puts so much thought and meaning into his designs, I have been cutting fabrics to make his Braille quilt this evening. I am planning to raffle it to raise money for Action for Blind People.

  8. Why shouldn't you indeed. Fab quilt but doesn't the rebel in you want to change one of the letters to a different one, just because?

  12. I did two for another quilt in this book, but I can't find the pic now! It's along thin one that is all orange/red and blue/teal. Lovely to see you block in it's final resign place!

  13. brilliant to be part of something big, Tammy I quite like the brown, I think brown is much maligned. As the old joke goes, it depends on how you use it.
