14 Foot Ceilings

I have been one busy lady lately.  One of my biggest projects happens to be the quilt that I am working on.  It is my second quilt I have ever made, the first one being for my nephew Sam.  I was hoping to finish that one before he was born, but instead it was given to him for Christmas, which was only a few months after his birth anyway.

My latest quilt, I am ashamed to say, I started last fall, hence the fall color palette.  I finally picked it back up not too long ago, as I was originally attempting to submit it for the MassArt Auction.  There submission deadline is fast approaching, so we will see just how far I get.

I have pretty much gotten through the most labor intensive part, which was sewing all those strips of cloth together.  I have finally started piecing it together, and I will post some pictures as that progresses.  I’m hoping to get a lot of work done on it this weekend.

It really helps that since we bought our condo, and thus have no spare money, I spend all my weekends at home working on projects.  Ideally I’d love to get to be making quilts all the time, and maybe even finding people to buy them.  But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves here.

This book is a fabulous resource, especially since I have been working with more modern patterns.  Although I’d love to get some really contemporary fabrics (so I’ll have to go to ebay and not Joann) and make a quilt that is a traditional pattern.  I know, probably not the most original idea, but hey, it’s an idea.

Anyway, stay tuned for more photos as I make more progress!
