The “Octopus Quilt” is finished. And delivered to Angela (she of cancer-care fame), Jeff and kids on Wednesday.
I explained that it was for snuggling on the couch. It can be thrown in the washer and dryer, no problem.
It is to be used.
Angela loved the documentary “My Octopus Teacher”. It inspired her love for these sea creatures and is truly an incredible movie. It’s one of those movies where you sit in wonder as you realize that there is so much that you don’t know about this fascinating world we inhabit. And what a miraculous world it is!
I used other fabrics–whales and anchors and seals–to make up the blocks. It’s the simplest and least complicated quilt I have ever made, but I wanted the blocks to be huge enough so that the octopus pattern would show to an advantage.
I hope you have time during the holidays to grab some wine or a cup of tea and see this movie. I guarantee you will be impressed.
