I've been vewwwy vewwy quiet for the last several weeks, but I HAVE been working. Right now, I'm about to begin a post-Thanksgiving, long weekend marathon to finish this quilt. The quilt is another custom job through My Etsy Shop, this time for a lovely customer in Montreal. She sent me a some of Anna Maria Horner's Lou Lou Thi collection which I matched with some Kona solids including a few new favorite colors: Amber, Yarrow, and Cayenne. Ever notice how nice names can make you like a color even more? Here are some photos. I hope to post some pictures of the finished product within, say, 72 hours.
Wonky block quilts like my Abstract Big Blocks are fun to make. You don't have the same amount rules and geometry as other quilts, like the City Block Quilt. Don't get me wrong, making that quilt is a joy as well, and the final result is absolutely stunning, but sometimes it's nice to just piece together some crazy strips of fabric. As usual, I'll be a little sad to ship this away to it's new home up north. I hope it will be loved!
