A new quilt in progress. Nothing like starting something right before you're due to go away and ignoring the laundry, the packing, the sorting and the everything else.
This quilt has been on my list forever. The book came out in 2005. It's been on my radar for about 3 years, I think. For some reason I decided it'd be a bit of pain to make and picking all the colours would be a headache. Ha - not so. I did all the cutting and got 6 rows (out of 13 - for a twin size) done in a little over 3 hours. I'm hoping to get a bit more done today before I pack up my machine and quit the sewing until I get back from market. Picking a section and a half out of the bounty of basics box made the job even simpler. Those clever folks at Kaufman have it all sorted for you if you want to make something like it - just pick up a kona bundle and the 22 fat quarters will make you a decent lap/napping quilt size.
I've called it the Dixon after this girly. Because it makes me think of her (and thinking of her always makes me smile).
Have you read up on the scavenger hunt game? Go check it out - you don't have to go to Market to play, it's for everyone. A little bit of fun, including prizes. I'm hoping it makes everyone feel like they are at Market, because if I could take you all I so totally would and we'd just hang out and have the best time.
