This is the pattern I made for my Gee’s Bend-inspired quilt. It has 16 of the bricklayer-type squares and then some lazy-girl strips. I really like large punches of white in quilts. I think it makes the color and patterns really stand out. I’m about an hour out from having the whole thing pieces, and then it will be on to the actual quilting, which I’m going to do by hand. Knowing me, I probably won’t start that until it’s cold, so if you’re tired of me talking about this quilt yet, that’s good news!
We’re planning on heading to the Bite of Seattle food festival this weekend and maybe hitting the beach if it’s sunny. I submitted my story and sample to Sew Simple. Yay!
