Finally… a real post and a finished quilt!

I’m so excited to have a functioning computer again and the ability to post pictures and update that I don’t even mind showing this picture showing my husband’s clothes strewn on the floor. I finished this quilt around the new year. I love Laura Gunn’s Lantern Bloom line and wanted to find a way to feature the large scale prints. I’m also a recent convert to using solid fabrics. I improvised a simple block pattern and had some fun with this. I love the rich, warm browns and the pop of the blue and purple.

I also like pieced backs and finagled a way to use up almost every scrap of the fabric to compose the back.

I also am in love with stippling. I keep thinking that the shapes look like seaweek fingers or something algae-like. Maybe I’ve just seen too much Spongebob lately. This quilt is for sale in the gallery.

Thanks for your patience while my computer was kaput. I promise more frequent posts. And thanks to the person who nominated me for a featured blogger with Park City Girl’s Quilt Festival. I’m honored. Watch for the feature on Amy’s blog.
