I have been progressing on a number of projects both knitting and sewing. The quilt I started at retreat a few weeks ago is almost finished. I made the top while at retreat and have been working on the quilting in small spurts. I am eager to show that one to you. The lighting isn't good for photography today anyway.
This is what I saw from my front door this morning.
Yes, it has been snowing all morning. Isn't it April?
I also pulled out a long buried UFO and did some quilting on it. I'm trying to decide if it needs more. Well, actually I quilted it twice. I wasn't happy with the first quilting so I picked it all out. Good thing it's a small quilt.
I made the top about ten years ago using the pattern Harmonic Convergence by Ricky Timms. The top is made from one piece of hand dyed fabric.
I have also been doing a little planning.
I want to make a quilt for the Robert Kaufman "No Prints Allowed" quilt challenge. I'm starting with the charm squares pictured but, of course, need to add another fabric to go with them. So, I broke down and actually made a fabric purchase today!! The first fabric or yarn purchase since LAST YEAR! I even restrained myself to ONE FABRIC. I also must say that I am thrilled that my local quilt shop now carries the entire Robert Kaufman solid fabric line!!! There was a whole WALL of solid fabrics to choose from.
I am OK with breaking my stashpact because 1. It will be used in a quilt right away. 2. I purchased a solid fabric and solid fabrics never go out of style or look "dated". (My goal after using up some prints was to build the solid palette)
Meet my new fabric.
Now I just need a sewing plan.
