I know it's not the done thing to say you like traditional quilts anymore. With the popularity of the quilting blogosphere and the advent of the loud-and-proud modern quilter, traditional fabrics and the quilts they're made from have become distinctly passe.
But I can't help myself. I love this quilt.
Maybe it's the richness of the colours. Maybe it's the way the blocks dance across the quilt top, their jazz-hands out and waggling.
Maybe it's just that for all that I love the bright colours of modern fabrics, there's something about traditional fabrics that just goes directly to the conservative traditionalist in my soul and says, "Hey, you're gonna love this!"
And, you know, maybe it's just that my kittehs are made of adorable when they refuse to walk on the finished quilt top, but sit down on it the instant I fold it up.
Don't you love Mal's expression?
What? You meant you didn't put this down for me to sit on?
So this is finished top #4 for 2012 - HUZZAH!
February Birthday Block
This is late, but I did let the mods know that it would be late. I'm a little worried that they haven't contacted me at all, though.
Of course, I stupidly packed it up and sent it off without taking a photo of it first. So no pics.
Scrap Attack: Dirty Dancing - layout and piecing together - will do this week, because need to get a move along!
Disappearing Harvest - still needs binding - will do this week
New York Beauty QAL - have papers, have started picking fabrics, haven't started putting it together yet - will do Block 0 this week!
Paper Pieced Stars: The Starry Night - I've actually ordered this book so I don't have to keep borrowing my friend's copy! I should try to do a block every couple of weeks at least...
Kitchen is still in a state of disarray, although we're looking to start picking up again later this week. And the kittehs say 'hi!' and 'what are you doing interrupting our nap for your stupid blog photos!'
Pet the kittehs (unless you're allergic to cat hair, or a dog person, in which case, don't) and then run along and check out all the other WIP Wednesdays linked up at Freshly Pieced!
