Well hello! I'm so excited to say that we have been in our new home for a week! The week before we moved in I spent painting every room of the house except for the bathrooms. Unfortunately, I hated my choice for the kitchen and living rooms so while unpacking this week I've also been repainting. Needless to say I am still up to my ears in boxes! So hopefully that explains the loooong absence! I hate being away from sewing/blogging/reading blogs/flickr for so long and I'm afraid it will be a bit longer before we're totally settled in.
This evening was so nice out and as I was unpacking the office/sewing room I found this quilt that I finished up the week before closing on the house.
I needed something simple and mindless so I turned to my own pattern, Optimism. I don't normally gravitate to these super earthy colors but the fabrics all came together, just like that. :)
There's a little bit of everything in this quilt, Amy Butler, Joel Dewberry, Anna Maria Horner, Lotta Jansdotter and Essex Yarn-dyed Linen.
Those Joel Dewberry trees make a great backing!
I can't wait to get back to my sewing machine and catch up on my blog reading. I feel so out of the loop!
Have a great week everyone!
