The studio has been a steady pull lately. No shortage of projects to fly between. I like that. Preparing for a couple of spring shows. Working on custom pieces. And in the swirl of work comes new ideas and fresh perspectives on what I do. Always moving forward. I've been making single fabric quilts lately. Two beautiful fabrics, quilted with cotton batting. They are lightweight and simple with an air of ease. Years ago Tom's mother gave us a quilt, hand stitched by his great-great-grandmother. Yet this quilt is not pieces and patches of scraps of cotton stitched into a whole. It is two whole pieces of fabric, hand quilted together early in the last century, to make a blanket. There is an easy simplicity about this quilt that always catches my eye and my heart. And so I've been setting aside my favorite pieces of fabric to make similar blankets. And I love them. I have a few in the shop, and more on the way.
