Today I've been slowly puttering around (who knew that two days in bed would make sweeping the floor such a feat!) and finally got my work table cleaned off and hey look what I found!
I finally settled on, obviously, a simple herringbone pattern with the Katagami fat quarter bundle from Mad About Patchwork. Nothing earth-shattering of course, but I like the end result... simple and calming. It seems like I've been making nothing but half-square triangles lately, so I've got my technique down pat and this pattern came together pretty easily. Only thing I'm not crazy about is how bulky the seams are at the corners of each square... I think I'm going to go back and re-iron the seams differently and see if I can reduce the bulk a bit. Next on to the back... I think I'll keep it simple with mostly white and work the remaining blue scraps in somehow. Need to work some creativity in there somehow! ;)
So that's one item making its way (slowly) off my Work In Progress pile. Under it I have a few baby quilts (one very overdue and one not yet due), a couple of other gift quilts for later this year, plus I still need to finish up my two showcase quilts for the MMQG exhibition coming up this winter. There's plenty more under that, but I think we'll leave it there for now as my ginger ale needs refreshing! ;)
