Putting It Together

I've been collecting fabrics from the streets of Los Boliches and I finally have enough (more than enough) to make a quilt.



Bit by bit...

  1. It is very interesting but some people look so funny wearing them. But it is only my opinion maybe others express different.

      I couldn't put those combinations together (well I COULD, but I WOULDN'T). But good for them for expressing themselves (or having odd taste). Some of the combinations make me a little dizzy (or nauseated).

      "How to Make a Continental Quilt," a European remake of the American film. (Hopefully, it will do better at the box office.)

  3. Wow. Just...wow!

    "Every minor detail is a major decision..." I'm wondering if they don't decide as much as pull the first things out of the drawer. Los Boliches and the Technicolor Dream Quilt!

      To be kind, I say they're just expressing themselves. But, if I'm honest, I don't think they have a clue! And some are just painful -- FOR ME -- to look at.

      Not pictured is the wife of the guy in the upper left image (the red plaid combinations). She wore a full-length see-thru beach cover-up ... in vivid magenta. The two of them together gave me heartburn!

      As in "beautifully Photoshopped" or "I'm simply stunned"?

    2. Both, Mitchell! The beauty of language, eh?

  5. I am sure none of these people are locals - does everyone lose their mind when it comes to dressing themselves when they holiday? Perhaps it is easiest just to grab whatever is in the closed regardless of if it goes together after a long evening of drinking :)

      I think some don't care, but others have clearly given careful thought to those combinations. Maybe they know something we don't.

  6. Yep! Crazy Quilt!!!!! (there really is a quilt called that... I think a person uses left over fabrics or maybe it's a crazy pattern... either way... you do, indeed, have a crazy quilt there)

  8. I didn't know you were proficient at sewing. I admire anyone who can work with cloth.

      And my work is so fine, you can't even see the stitches.

      I haven't listened to her for ages. Maybe I'll pull out the Broadway Album today.
