It's been a while...

I received a comment from a reader the other day mentioning the fact that I haven't posted in a while and wondering if all was well.  I thought I should post something so as not to alarm anyone else.  I am fit as a fiddle and right as rain (whatever the hell that means!)  I have just been really busy with lots of projects.  I cleaned and organized the studio (making some significant changes in there), painted some furniture (with homemade "chalk" paint) and have worked on several quilts.  There is a stack that just need to be quilted, however, I have not had the opportunity to take decent photos.

The decor in the studio has had sort of a beach theme.  I have lots of prints from both the east and west coasts that I used in there but decided I need a change.  The blue and white quilt (and curtains and pillow covers) are all coming out and I am replacing them with lots of bright colors - predominantly turquoise, lime green and pink.  I have made a quilt using some fun Riley Blake fabrics and white Kona cotton.  It is very different (for me) and has a "modern" vibe.  I have the fabric for curtains and I will piece both a valence and pillow covers.  I bought a lot of new storage containers in turquoise and lime and the studio feels much lighter and brighter.

Hopefully this weekend I will be able to drag the quilt tops outside and do a little photo shoot.  I really don't like posts without photos.  How about you?

  1. Well, glad to hear what you are doing. I can't wait to see a photo of the new, lighter feeling studio. Modern colors... etc.

    I keep trying to lighten up my stash with new stuff... but to match what I have I get older looking fabrics. bummer. I love turquoise and reds (but don't have any) I like lime green but have only a few...

    Love your red and white zig zag quilt. And, I positively use color catchers all the time with my quilting fabrics... either before and even after a quilt. Even though all fabric is washed coming into the house I've had some quilts bleed so now I throw in lots of color catchers with any quilt I wash.
