My friend Kim does wonderful things with colour. When she brought this little top to show-and-tell I fell in love with it. I just might have put it into my bag at the end of the session and brought it home with me because Kim has a reputation as a serial "topper" and I couldn't bear the thought of this piece languishing in a trunk. And it just might have been languishing in my sewing room for quite a while (I looked it up -- we were working on strippy quilts four years ago.)
I rediscovered it the other day and put it on the quilting machine. I have been quilting edge-to-edge designs on "quick quilts" recently so I changed the pace a bit and indulged in some more complex designs on this one. I love the way the feather quilting curls through the pieced strips.
This quilt needs to find its way home to Kim soon, but I'm going to leave it on the living room floor where it catches the light just right for just a few more days.
