HEYA! I finished something.
Never mind that I have two more not-done-at-all quilts in the waiting, I got this bad boy turned around in just a few weeks. It will eventually be for August, but is hanging up at Bolt for a little while on display. Let me tell you why my hands are waving wildly in the air while I try to type this up-- this throw-sized business was put together by me but quilted by the excedingly talented Gayle (Grammie) Karol of Tillie Studios. Piecing it was a piece of cake, and it only took a long-ish afternoon to get the whole top finished. I let her decide on the manner she'd like to quilt it, and was thrilled when we got together to see what she had chosen.
I have several more patchwork projects in my head. Blair (my awesome, jerkface friend who is always getting things done and now-- Teaching Crochet! The nerve.) has me thinking in greys, and this free (but donations will be put to fantastic use) quilt pattern from the ass-kicking Weeks Ringle is on my short list.
Fabric and pattern details are on the Bolt Blog for those of you interested-- I'm heading back to the peaches and the pickles and blackberries the size of golf balls. I would also like to have my kitchen painted this weekend. DO I SEE A SHOW OF HANDS? I didn't think so.
