My Korak




 still playing with korak-style piecing


for now each square has a secret: 
its own raison d'etre
 
to say this technique fascinates me is to state the obvious:
i should be busily making holiday gifts for family

but here i sit:
bin of fragments
scissor, needle and thread
losing myself in the rhythm
auditioning
selecting
stitching
 
 korak patches
paired with hand-printed leaves
fabric naturally dyed
with color from my herb garden

We woke this morning to the first serious frost.  Fallen leaves are icy white.  Frost on the mums. A crispy early morning.  But we joyously anticipate temps in the mid- to high 50s by mid-day.

This is nice. Do you plan to join all the patches to make a large quilt?
