Last night, Kyle had a business dinner that I wasn’t invited to. Don’t tell him but I love when this happens. I put on my sweats, poor myself a glass of wine, and get so much done.
Like any true quilter, I’m juggling several projects right now which, more or less, have to get done within a certain amount of time. So last night, there was a lot I really needed to be doing. But truthfully, there was only one thing I really felt like doing. Remember that shot cotton quilt I started way back in January? I almost forgot about it, too, but last night I returned to it full force.
This was one of those quilts which was half made over the course of several months, and half made over the course of one long late night.
Today, I took it to the Charles River for a little fun in the sun.
I love Kona cottons. They’re like my favorite flavor of ice cream that I’m always in the mood for. But shot cottons… well, these are like an artisanal ice cream that comes in crazy flavors like goat cheese or beet (which are actually really delicious, I promise). They’re my indulgent fabric. And this quilt is for none other than me.
I have a wonky framed square design that I’ve used a few times before but somehow it works particularly well with these fabrics; they have such depth and dimension.
Since the sun is out, I didn’t realize how windy it was until I was by the water….
But who needs a coat when you’ve got a quilt?
