Silk sample sewing

photo 2 (2)

I have had a busy busy year.  I can’t believe that despite this, I started sewing Yoshiko Jinzenji blocks from her Modern Sampler after I picked up her book at Third Place books.  Although that wasn’t quite what happened really.  I picked up the book and longingly savored her minimalist composition, and then put the book away in my neglected new sewing room.

And then Debbie from my guild and A Quilter’s Table published her Block A on Instagram and I instantly recognized the pattern from the book I’d just bought.  I became obsessed.  I clean my sewing room looking for my Marimekko scraps from Pirkko.  Never found them, but in my newly cleaned sewing room I began cutting into all my silk selvedges and I cannot stop loving this project.
