the quilting bug has bitten again. hard.
mae's quilt top is finished, not without much unpicking and indecision and guesswork. i decided to shake up the basic freeform patchwork by creating rivers of natural linen on each end, randomly adding linen pieces to make the design work. a new technique for me and one that was not without many second guesses. i'm happy with the end result, even if it is a little bigger than i had planned which makes my least favourite task of basting even less appealing, and i'm looking forward to pushing this design further with subsequent quilts. i now have four quilt tops ready to be basted and quilted (i also pulled together a little baby quilt in the last couple of weeks but haven't photographed it yet).
still planning for my shop update this sunday, may 1 and since i have decided to make the leap over to bigcartel, i'm looking forward to revealing my NEW shop! still working towards releasing my baby oobee sleepy set pattern, too. almost done...
