The color inspiration came from the striped sisal rug under my little dining table. Notice that Mr. Blasé insisted upon being in every photo.
This little 30-inch square quilt was my January choice for Melissa and Shanna's Lovely Year of Finishes. Here are a couple more photos.
And a detail of the quilting (my warm-up for Bloom)
This first lovely finish has motivated me, so, last night, I pulled out another project and kept going.
I had to look through my blog to see how long it has been since I last worked on it. Yikes! It's been three months. Here's the photo I took on October 10.
I'm now quilting the folded throw in the background–with more loopy feather-ish shapes–and planning to finish this month.
(Then maybe I can finally get around to working on the project with those selvages ...)
