Quilt in Progress

September 2011

Here’s a peek at the quilt I’m working on these days:

And, here it is coming together on the design wall:

This quilt is such a happy quilt.  I’m so enjoying working with it–which hasn’t been often enough since I’ve been so busy processing harvest food.

The fabrics are all Kaffe Fasset prints, which I love.  And though it can seem jumbled a bit at this stage, I’ve seen it made up, and I really like it.  I bought the kit from Marge at Maine-ly Sewing in Nobleboro, Maine.  She sells online too:  http://mainelysewing.com/

It’s on Lucy the long-arm now, being quilted with lime green thread, which is looking quite pretty, and with a “sweet pea” pantograph.  The backing is a lime green print I got on sale at Quilt Diva’s in Rockland.  It has a linear print of leaves whose panels were QUITE hard to line up properly in order to get the right width.

I haven’t decided what to name it yet.  Happy Quilt isn’t quite right.  Layer cake isn’t either.  It will come to me…
