I started 2013 with a lot of motivation to finish up some quilt WiPs, and also intended to start quite a few new ones. What I didn't anticipate at that time though was how real life would throw me a loop. It's been a tough couple of months but I'm really starting to get back on track, and I hope that means I'll be able to start sharing more quality time with my Janome.
Last week my hubs helped me out by throwing me in head first, and picked out a selection of prints from Get Together by David Walker, with a request for a camping quilt. Large, cozy, and care free is the plan. A quilt for us, a quilt made for a utilitarian purpose, and one we can love without hesitation of getting it caught in a rainstorm, danced on at festivals, or the fear of spills during picnics.
Since the critters are what my husband and I love, I want to keep it classic and simple. I'm planning a double-sided quilt so it doesn't feel like there's a top or a backing. So far I have two columns sewn, and two more to go.
This is the perfect project to get me back at it. Of all the quilts I've made, not one has lived under our roof, and I'm so thrilled with the prospect of having a huge comfy quilt of our own.
