I am in Glennis Dolce's online indigo workshop and just got started today getting my hands in
the indigo. This afternoon was warm and I was able to work outside to get the vat started. Two weeks
of warm weather predicted and I am looking forward to spending more time outside with
the buckets of blue.

It started with me thinking that the little chicken fabric should be encircled somehow - protected. 
Now I am thinking it looks a little overprotected. Maybe it changed things too much.

Red Runner Sampler

I am working out some stitch ideas on a runner for the kitchen table. It is very red and our kitchen is pale blue - so I like the two together. 

I have tried to build this into a durable and washable little quilt. Cotton front and back and flannel as bat. 

I am looking forward to watching the ways it might change with lots of use and washings.

There are two identically pieced ends to this little quilt - both with the four chicken print square nine patches at the end. I have not finished quilting this end yet - but am already thinking I may quilt the other pieced area on the opposite end very differently - maybe all curves.
