Yes, I still remember how to quilt...

Although I haven't been in the blogosphere much lately, that doesn't mean I haven't been getting my hands dirty.  In addition to indigo dyeing, I've also been working on a bed quilt, which I started basting last night:

I'm tired of our ratty old Ikea duvet and decided that we ought to have a real quilt on our bed.  A couple months ago or so, I bought on sale a kit of Birchtree Lane fabrics, with their fun bird, leaf, and feather designs, which I supplemented with various tone-on-tone fabrics in whites and light browns.  I didn't make the actual quilt design of the kit, but did simple diamond-in-a-square blocks.  My sewing machine is headed to the shop for a thorough cleaning, and when it comes back, I will be ready to quilt!

Linking up to WIP Wednesday on Freshly Pieced and The Needle and Thread Network.  Happy sewing!


  1. the colour combination of blues and browns is one of my favourites. Looks good!
