It All Comes Out In The Wash

It's no secret that I find peace in my sewing room and thread is my therapy.  The other day I was in a particularly foul mood, so I retreated to my sewing room, turned up James Taylor, and started playing with a few scraps that I had left out on the cutting table.  While moving the scraps around I noticed an assortment of lights and darks that almost seemed to form a colorwash.  I liked the design enough to stitch it together and quilt it with a simple 3/4" grid.  After couple hours of stitching and singing along with Sweet Baby James, my bad mood had come out in the wash and the Alzhimer's Art Quilt Initiative got another quilt out of the deal too!

Nice job! I worked on mine while I was away and it's amazing how similar it is to yours - and we were in different countries while we made them! Total coincidence!

Great colorwash! I love sewing. It's waaaaay cheaper than intensive psychotherapy....LOL!
