it’s a process

stef happened to be in philly on my birthday weekend a couple of months ago, so of course we got together for a couple of dinners.

yummy gift from stef (glampyre)

she put together a little gift for me, enabling my new obsession!


so I quickly started matching it up with some of the fat quarters I picked up at my local quilt shop. the theme quickly turned into orange.

coin pile

tom wanted a big quilt. so I had a lot of cutting and piecing to do.

this thing is huge

it slowly turned into, what I’m calling, my summer quilt. the colors are a little retro but fresh.

quilt top featuring dobby butt

126 strips, 54 blocks, 9 towers later I have a queen size top (that is dobby approved)

quilt back- sneak peek

the back was pieced as well, with one tower.

and secret little snippets.
now to sandwich it all together, quilt, and bind.
