Done and photographed in time for entry, but also stitched along at a steady pace over the last few months. It took time and I didn't care. I got better at hand quilting, learned some better technique. This is 100% going to live on the couch. #shibori #indigo #handquilting #applique #shibapplique

Quilting up a storm. Only have the insides of the dyed diamonds left to do. #handquilting

Lining up my strips from @crazymomquilts' class last weekend. I think I'm going to slowly build up a sack of prepped low volume scraps to keep on with this. Long-ish leaders and enders.

Join me while I over-deliberate on my next knitting project. Yes, this vintage cashmere is soft and gray and would make a pretty cardigan. But, do I really want to knit at this gauge and how would it feel over a long sleeve shirt? Maybe it should be a neck accessory, but would that take advantage of the quantity I have? Perhaps a loose gauge boxy pullover would be better? Oh my goodness, it doesn't matter. #knitting #deliberative

Purl Soho's garter stitch hat is pretty much the best baby cap ever. It manages to be a close fitting pilot style without having scary ties. Plus tassel. Knit in @thefibrecompany Terra. #purlsoho #purlsohobusyhands

I started this quilt last winter with the idea that it would go to someone who could use some comfort and support. I finished it several months ago, but it's taken me until now to commit it. These #ohiostars are headed to Ozone House in Ann Arbor, a home for teens, often LGBTQ, who need a safe place to stay. It's one of our #a2mqg chosen charities. #charityquilt #modernquilt #traditionalquilt

I had to do some surgery before basting. We had some unintentional wonk that wasn't working. #a2mqg #intentions #modernquilt #traditionalquilt.

We so enjoyed having our niece here for a few weeks. She knows how to kill an afternoon knitting with a quilt and a cat. Girl after my own heart.

I had handwork time this weekend too. I'm enjoying the very slow process of adding #appliqué diamonds to this resist dyed top. #indigo

First block of #eadsquilt. I am not sure I have a quilt's worth of paper piecing in me, but I already printed double the amount I need so... 😬. I'm taking it to guild retreat next weekend. Here goes! #eadsqal
