Another day, another quilt

I’m very aware that my non-traveling time is running out. Back in November I decided that I really needed to use the time between coming home from the Caribbean and heading out to California for stitching…

Steve has been away the past few days and I have been even worse than usual about picking up the kitchen and some other niceties of life…

I holed myself up in my studio today. The sun was on its way down when I came downstairs this evening.

Yes, there is snow on the ground and according to my computer it is cold outside…

I have been thinking of summer as I have been sewing a new quilt. It’s all pieced and I’ve started the quilting. I’ve been planning this quilt for a while. I watched a new building go up and knew I wanted to use it as my inspiration…

The focus fabric is called Sand Dollars. It’s from the Low Tide collection by Jane Dixon for Andover Fabrics. I chose solids to co-ordinate and I’ll soon have a finished quilt to show.

At least that’s the idea.

Now to pick up before Steve gets home!

    I like the beginnings of your Low Tide quilt. What pattern are you using? What complementary fabrics did you choose? I am a newer quilter.
