You can almost see the heat in that photo, huh?


and that one. 85 degrees at 9 am? (95 at 2 pm.) North of Boston? Being under a quilt is the last place anyone wants to be.


So in the interest of time, and in the interest of NOT being under this quilt at the sewing machine any more,


I wimped out and straight-line quilted it, even though I am currently on a “eat-your-greens-and-practice-your-fmq” kick. Looks nice, though, I think.

kokka strawberry leftovers quilt

Now it’ll sit for two weeks before I mail it off to a lovely June bride–our guild meeting isn’t until the first Saturday of July, and isn’t one of the chief pleasures of the quilting life showing off one’s finishes at quilt guild?!

Pattern: just some framed squares I dashed together. I talked about the sizes I used in this post.

Fabrics: The pink in the top and back is Timeless Treasures Sketch in Lipstick. It’s awful I promise you don’t want to go and hoard it at all. πŸ˜‰ Kokka strawberries left over from my mom’s WashiΒ (so if you buy 3 yards, and cut a size L Washi, you’ll have enough left over to make an awesome quilt). Low volume prints from Comma, Architextures, and that Memoir print from Violet Craft’s Madrona Road (which is also the binding). Chat Noir Lizzy House Pearl Bracelets. Sketch in Charcoal. Kona Coal. Other, random grey prints. πŸ™‚

Now, back to the grind–I have another quilt to quilt and bind by Saturday!
