I'm still here.
I'm in the middle of one of the coolest paper piecing block designs, but I'm stalling on the embroidery needed. So, I decided to cut up an entirely new stack of fabric and start a full quilt top. Then I was rearranging the furniture in my house and somehow started stripping and sanding some old furniture. Oh, and I'm starting a new quilt for the quilting retreat this weekend. Distracted, much?
Well, I'm finally posting some pictures of that new quilt top.
Pictures don't do this justice though. Have you ever felt how light, soft and silky Anna Maria Horner's voile fabric is? This is all from her Little Folks line. I wish you could all reach through the monitor and feel this quilt top.
Kelly over at kelbysews started the My Precious QAL (quilt along). The purpose is to finally gather the courage to cut into fabric that you've been hoarding in a pile and gazing at and petting, but never sewing with.
I meant to make a summer quilt out of this fabric last year. Thank goodness Kelly knows what is good for me.
I still have to choose the backing and quilting pattern, but I did make this in three days. I love it when other quilters push me to go the extra step.
