I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. It’s been a lot going on in my world, which of course is no excuse. BUT, if it’s any consolation, I have some really exciting things coming up here soon. Look for the first post on the 5th of April (So, it looks like we’ll be launching sometime in May. Stay posted!).
In the meantime, I took a few pictures of my latest quilt creation this weekend. It is a quilt that I made as a throw for my bedroom. It is called “Boardwalk”. I had a hard time naming it but, my friend Chris suggested “Boardwalk and I thought it was perfect. The long vertical stripes do put you in mind of a boardwalk. I love the colors and the vibrancy of this quilt. I debated over the white binding and even took it to the LA Modern Quilt Guild meeting to get everyone’s vote. I got lots of great advice but in the end they encouraged me to be daring and go with the white. I’m so happy I did. It wasn’t until the binding was completely sewn on that I knew I had made the right decision. I did have a challenge with the mitered corners for a 1″ binding (finished width). Maybe I’ll add a quick tutorial on this because I love the effect of the 1″ binding. I’ll post more pictures soon.
