Last week I was given an old spoon. As soon as the man about my house saw he it said it looked more like a shovel than a spoon!
History is unknown, but it looks like a commemorative spoon rather than one made to be used, and it also looks like it was engraved by hand, and not by an expert.
I accepted the spoon with the thought that the design engraved inside the bowl looked like a quilt block. Yesterday I decided it was time to turn it into a quilt block … and a quilting design too.
Then I played with the shapes and lines and the idea grew from that one block as an applique and a quilting pattern to a collection of over 50 variations and modifications.
So, what did you play with on a lazy Sunday afternoon?
