Patch #238 Patchplay



As I pulled out the final basting thread in Land of Flood and Drought, I had a strange feeling. So I looked back and found this post http://imgoingtotexas.blogspot.com/2015/08/more-nuts-than-usual.html from 52 weeks ago, to the day. It was the first time I invoked the phrase "Patchplay" ... the day I came up with my own funky take on Jude's paperless piecing ... the day I truly embarked on the cloth that is now almost complete, although I had no way of knowing that at the time.

A couple of months ago, I "edited" the Land of Flood and Drought by cutting off the top ...



Today I cut out two of those yellow patches as memory keepers ...



and any day now, I think I'll be showing you the finished piece. But in the meantime, feel free to check the Index to see how "Patchplay" and "Land of Flood and Drought" evolved.

Don't you love it? I expected it to be within a month or so, but hitting the very day was like feeling one of the universal strings had been plucked on my behalf.

I think it may actually get done this weekend ...
