Con Affetto

I sometimes give titles to my quilts.... a friend of mine thinks it is awfully pretentious!  :-) This one is called Con Affetto.

my latest scrap quilt

It means, with affection and comes from the note my Veronese friend wrote me. She is the one who gave me the hand-dyed heart I inserted in this quilt. Marina Tavella is an accomplished textile artist and teaches the dying workshop for my Verona Textile Trip.




The title also worked as over 100 half-square-triangles were 'by-products' from the Valentine's quilt...with affection. By 'by-products' I mean the secondary pieces that came out of making the X's and O's.

Con Affetto, 32" x 40"

The back will be "quiet". Simple.


I will be teaching triangles at Eweknit next weekend. (April 22, 2017)

    I love the title.
    I do not think it is pretentious to add titles - as you know all my pieces are titled.
