tinapple_quilt_bowl_2016

A picture of a worn old quilt caught my eye. The stripes reminded me of men’s pajamas -washed and faded ones. They showed up in this polymer veneer for a maple bowl turned by my husband.

Taking a hint from Emily Squires Levine, I’m starting to make a habit of using my scraps at the end of the day. Of course the carefree scrap vessels often turn out to be my favorites.

        Love the stripes. They remind me of the sample swatches my dad used as a sales rep for men’s clothing, many years ago. They made great quilts and doll clothes.
