Plain Brown Wrapper
80 x 80
hand quilted with big stitching in various shades of brown perle #8
For my purposes cream also counted as brown.
The center is a 50 inch square that consists of brown postage stamps (1.5 inch squares) and a heart.
Next there is a round of 2.5 inch squares. Then there is a round of dark/light four patches made of 2.5 inch squares. Most of those were from swaps years ago but I didn't have enough of them so I filled in with postage stamps in that round in the center of each side. Then there is another round of 2.5 inch squares.
The next round consists of 3.5 inch squares with 3 inch nine patches from the Parts Department in the corners.
The final round consists of 4.5 inch squares with four patches in the corners and middle of each side.
I used perle #8 in various shades of brown and stitched through the middle of the 1 inch squares in concentric squares. I stitched an eyeballed 1/4 inch from the sides of the other sized squares. The four patches and nine patches and postage stamps in the other borders had an X stitched through them.
The binding was scrappy brown.
And guess what! The backing is brown.
Lots of scraps in this one!
Lots of Slow Sunday (and Monday and Tuesday...) Stitching in this one!
