this weekend

Something that has been tempting me away from my knitting: my Innocent Crush ColorBricks Quilt

About a month ago I whipped up a Colorbrick Quilt using a fat quarter bundle of Anna Maria Horner's Innocent Crush fabric (in the Swept Away palate I think). I loved it but it was rather plain. Being eager to try out hand quilting with perle cotton no. 8, I jumped right into it. This quilt is for ME after all so I'm not concerned with absolute perfection. It's actually not difficult at all. There are so many gorgeous hand quilting projects out there that I could not resist any longer.
I hope everyone has been having a lovely weekend!

Incredibly beautiful and I must say inspiring! A couple walking down Coast Hwy this morning would have made a nice quilt palette. My husband gave me a weird look when I tried to explain. Thanks for the inspiration ... off to knitting!
