instead of packing…

…I may have started a new quilt. In my defense, I packed a few boxes, then took a little break to cut and arrange a few strips. It can’t be all work all the time, right?! The kind folks at Freespirit sent along a few fabrics from Denyse Schmidt’s Hadley line recently and as I was packing, I realized how nice this line looked with those Cotton + Steel basics (those basics seem to go well with everything!). I decided to cut them up for this fun minimalist herringbone quilt. I was going to stick with just the fabrics they sent me, but in the end I felt I’d like to see a few more of the Hadley prints included, so I ordered a bundle from Westwood Acres.


Max has already claimed this one for himself, so it looks like I’ll be making it bed-sized. White is likely a bad choice for a three year old (marker-obsessed!) boy, but I figure by the time this one is no longer looking so fresh, I’ll have made something else for him.

Our closings and move are all scheduled for Friday, so this one will be packed away shortly and continued after the move…
