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!
