this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.

Odd Fabric Solution

Sometimes a fabric just speaks to you......not because it's one of your favorite lines or designers but because there's just something about it.  When I saw the Kokopilli fabric some years ago, I had to have it (click on picture to see fabric better).  You know how this goes....I only bought one yard of it........nuts!
One night......during a dream......you know, that reocrruring dream of being locked in a quilt store with a million dollars to spend and 30 minutes to do away with that amount........and just as you walk up to the checkout counter.....you wake up?????........I woke with no fabric but I had an idea.....yea!
I fussy cut the little Kokopilli guys, did  wacky churn dashs around each and for the center.....I make a boy and girl Kokopilli with flutes(made from faux suede).  I really loved this quilt......it was my first non-traditional quilt.......and while at a quilt shop someone offered to buy it for her  therapeutic swimmning and rehab center.......she said that when she saw it from across the room, it touched and inspired her deeply and that she had to have it (where have I heard those words)...............how cool is that.
So when you buy an odd fabric and don't know what you're going to do with it.......try thinking outside your box or go to bed and sleep on it.

That is a very unique quilt. I never did "wonky" churn dash blocks but they look like fun.
