I finally finished this second variation of my Linework Quilt a few weeks ago! It was the perfect little quilt to give to my cousin who is expecting her first baby boy. Paper pieced string quilts like this one aren't exactly the quickest to put together, but I know my cousin appreciates the effort!
I finally finished my courthouse step quilt top using Rifle Paper Co's Les Fleurs line for Cotton + Steel. I started this quilt this past summer while at an annual retreat with friends. Then it sat for months, as did everything else sewing related. I always feel very motivated to get back to quilting after the holidays, especially this year since my photography season is wrapping up and work at the studio has been a lot less lately. It's nice to get back to the sewing room and have a chance to be creative! There's something about sewing that just makes me feel normal again!
Today is my stop on the Kaffe Fassett Artisan Blog Tour! I'm excited to share this quilt I made with Kaffe's latest fabric collection for Freespirit Fabrics, called Artisan. I used a mix of fabrics from both colorways, Sunny and Blue. I also used a mix of fabric types, including wovens, batiks and quilting cottons, all of which are included in the Artisan Collection.
I was honored when Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson asked me earlier this year to be a part of their Splendid Sampler Quilt Along! It's a 100 block sampler quilt, made of 6" blocks, created by 86 different designers. There are so many quilters participating in this project, it's pretty amazing!
