First business -- SewLindaAnn -- you are the winner of Natalia's new book! I'll try to shoot you an email, or you can contact me. :)
Now -- my post --
This is, I think, my favorite quilty-type photo I've ever taken. I love it so much -- it's even up there in my header.
Maybe it's because of the subject -- but the colors, the shapes, the scrappiness, the lighting -- it all makes me happy. The only downside is the WHEN the picture was taken -- in January of 2011, and blogged about way back then...
This year -- more than 1 1/2 years later -- I wanted a fall quilt.
I thought about starting a new project, but some good friends advised me to finish up something I already started (they know me well enough to know I have plenty of WIPS lying about).
So this weekend, while my big Cosmos quilt was at the long-armer, I finished piecing the arcs.
And added three more blocks to what I already had.
And quilting has commenced.
Seriously though -- this quilt makes me so happy I want to sing songs to it. Can't wait to show it all finished up!
If you want to make one of your own -- Aneela has the Quilt Along details here.
Until later... ♥
