Pattern: Dalton, from Kristi Schroeder’s Southwest Modern: From Marfa to New Mexico: 18 Travel-Inspired Quilts.
Modifications: Along with trying to use up my yarn stash before I die, I would also like to use up by fabric stash. This quilt-as-you-go version of Dalton is a collision between Southwest and shabby chic (lots of red fabric from French General), with bits from Mom’s old clothes. The backing, the batting, and the binding are also from scraps.
Floor Quilts: I moved my piano into our walk-out basement where the temperature is a lovely 70 degrees in the heat of the summer. Since the floor is polished concrete, it is also a difficult acoustic space. I have an audience of stuffed teddy bears down there to help with sound absorption, and probably will make more floor quilts as needed.
