Running Warm and Cool

Linda Beth

Some of you may remember seeing my finished top from the Warm / Cool Quilt Along hosted by Jeni at In Color Order during 2011.

Well, it's taken me a while, but I finally threw together a backing and picked up some batting, and hope to get this puppy quilted in the next couple of weeks. I'd been looking for an excuse to buy something from Malka Dubrawksy's "A Stitch in Color" fabric line, and here was the perfect piece and the perfect use, as far as I could tell.


I also returned to my all-batik version from the same QAL. I needed some completely mindless work on Thursday (it was just one of those days), and I had the first 6 rows of HSTs arranged and stacked in order, so it was just a matter of chain piecing.


Which leaves me with about 2/3s of the quilt top to put together... including figuring out layout from this point down. Thankfully I've already sewn all of the HSTs, so I can go straight to the fun part!

Hope everyone's having a splendid weekend! Portland is swimming in sunlight this weekend, and I'm looking forward to joining a friend for a bike ride and margaritas later on! But first, the back yard is in desperate need of some mower action. And off I go.
