Sunshine and Shadow

An appropriate name for this clear blue day with long, long shadows from the low-hanging sun. I finished the binding on this quilt at the beginning of the week, then washed it to remove dog hair and stiffness from so much quilting. Now it's got soft little wrinkles and feels so soft.

This is lap-size. I wanted to combine some traditional patchwork with lots of space for quilting. Sort of my take on modern quilting.

Close up of the quilting in the teal body of the quilt. It's simple to do, but there is a LOT of it.

Quilting in the patchwork band.
This is number 7 for the year; how in the world am I going to match last year's total of 12 finishes? Well, I have two more quilted that just need to be bound, a third on the frame and a fourth pieced. Seems unlikely with only a little over 3 weeks left in the year, including Christmas, but I will make a push and see what I can do.
