It's called Play and the goal was to make a mini quilt based off of a playing card.
I knew I would never be able to decide on just one card so I drew mine completely at random:
And then I left it alone for about a week.
Sometimes I'd pick up my sketchbook and start sketching out designs. I had these grand ideas of eight interlocking diamonds in different tones of red.
And at some point the "7 ate 9" joke got stuck in my head and I started giggling.
Every time I would look at fabric or try to sketch I would start giggling.
There was no fighting it.
"Ate" of Diamonds.

The silvery-grey thread doesn't show up very well in the sunshine.
I tried to be serious.
It just wasn't happening.
I can't avoid my own silliness.
