Ragamuffin, 2009, 33" x 39"


Pat Brim-Williams abandoned a series of 4" squares—checkered fabrics in bright red, green, purple and gold—that she had sewn together in long strips. Being allergic to 4" squares, I snipped the strips apart. Without a straight edge or measurements, I cut the fabric into smaller pieces and stitched everything together in a folksy, asymetric pattern.

The baby boy blanket is finished with hand stitching and backed by a red organic cotton. The 1/4" binding is mostly a purple check with insets of contrast fabric.
