Next Up

The next quilt on my frame is called City Harbor. It's a pattern in the book City Quilts, by Cherri House. The book became my favorite this summer, and still hasn't left my bedside, where I look at it frequently and dream about which quilts I want to make. Usually I adapt patterns rather than follow them exactly (much like I can't follow a recipe exactly when cooking but have to improvise), but on this one, I came pretty close. The only changes I made were to substitute one color from those listed, and to make a lot of the strips a little longer so it would be a longer quilt. 

I finished loading it Saturday morning and quilted off and on over the weekend.
