i am slowly but surely working on the august quilt for do. good stitches. i had it on the ironing board, pressing in progress, when i had to stop work and attend to other things. the next day i caught this scene as i walked by the sewing room and it looked so perfectly lovely i couldn't resist the shot.
i did end up going with the light flax linen for sashing. it started to grow on me and now i do love it. i also picked up backing fabric so, if everything goes right, i can have it finished in the next week or two.
last weekend we took a little day trip up to la conner for the annual quilt festival at the la conner quilt & textile museum. it was mostly an excuse to get out of town on a gorgeous day. and also look at quilts. that was nice, too.
i have a pretty terrific little family.
fabric: jessica jones tulip in dusk (from the outside oslo collection)
14 weeks! she's a keeper.
