This is the last of the 2011 quilt projects. It was probably the easiest (and scrappiest) of all of them, made from a pattern published by Weeks over at Craft Nectar a couple of years ago. It was a gift for my parents for Christmas, and besides the Kona (snow I think?) it was all made from bits I already had.
I have way too many bits.
This pattern had been on my list for a while and it's something I'm going to make again. Hopefully soon. (I included a envelope style slipcover to store the quilt in. I'm not sure how often it's going to get put away, but I think it's a nice storage solution for seasonally used blankets.)
In other news:
- I just ordered Weeks and Bill's new quilt magazine, Modern Quilts Illustrated. Very exciting. (I'll take all the excitement I can get).
- We are to the painting and flooring portion of our basement project. Which means that soon we'll be to the moving furniture and twirling around in fits of unadulterated joy portion of the project.
- Paul bought me a Kindle Fire last month and it's pretty flippin' neat. I've been using it to watch old/strange BBC comedies in the middle of the night (nursing) and to check out books from our library. I'm wanting to subscribe to a newspaper or some magazines, but I've read a lot of mixed reviews on this front and I'm not totally sure where to start. Any thoughts or recs?
