But I think, for me, very much a scrap-work method that addresses seams as an overlap rather than a fold. But then also and most of all, a combination. Assembled from available parts or elements. Components. In a sort of Grab Bag technique. A just going kind of piecing. But not without thought.
How that encourages free form. Which in turn encourages new form, which encourages reconsideration. Which eventually encourages evolution.
I cannot talk enough about this today. Early rise and a day filled with things you wouldn't choose to do but better get done. So let me get through it and then my days will be more open.
So here I am. Ok. Still a full day tomorrow for loose ends. But I've been here and there and all the while stitching small cloth.
This log cabin format, so easy with a bag of scraps. Moon in the middle this time. Some kind of home from another kind of angle. The log cabin quilt has a long history, many patterns emerged from the way it is arranged. But the block itself always says home by it's nature, how it holds and spirals around center. I always liked that part. I was thinking of making houses out of them. But then, in my mind, they became big enough to hold a house.
But really what caught me this time is how home can be the simpleness of one's own world. And so I like the idea of the moon-cabin block. I do. As I rest in the idea of simpler times. Like I do. When I need to. And I'll name this small cloth after that. A simpler time.
Home might be small but it always holds the Moon. Or the sun. Or the Stars.
