I have to be reminded sometimes of the beauty found in simplicity. Being a "maximalist", it is often hard to know when to edit. It makes me think of Project Runway and Mr. Gunn. Knowing when to stop...not add anything....embellish any more....it is hard for me. I like stuff.
My affection for quilts is unmeasured. I tend to be attracted to intricate piecing and multiple fabric patterns, but when I saw this quilt I was mesmerized. So simple, but so simply beautiful.
No crazy fabrics, tiny little pieces or crazy geometrical design here, just a big fat circle on a square.
The seller of this quilt thought it was pretty old. I think that meant about 60+ years, as surmised in conversation. Not being a quilt historian, I have to assume she is correct. My minimal quilt knowledge does not think it was made in the day of walking into a yummy quilt store and selecting fabrics. But what we must appreciate about this quilt is the simple pattern, design and fabric choice.
Enjoy simplicity. It can be stunning.
