escape from the comfort zone

this quilt is based on one i saw in the book "city quilts" by cheri harris.  i call mine "amish in the city," and it is certainly not my usual style of quilt.  now that i see it all together (and the shoebox empty,  yay), i wish i had a large wall so it could hang rather than drape over the sofa which, by the way, will soon be gone...no room!  it will be hand quilted and then bound with the turquoise, see in the 2 bookend blocks, although the one in front left corner appears off shade due to camera flash.  not sure yet how it will be quilted.  **** monday again so soon?  hard to believe july is a little over 2 weeks away.  funny, when i wasn't working at all, there were endless days with nothing to do.  now that i'm working only part time, it seems every day is packed with tasks.  i am still managing to get sewing or quilting into every day and the pinwheel just might be done this month!

  1. Catching up on your recent posts....how big is Amish in the City? I like the scrappy batik crumbs, too. And happy birthday, mom!
