For Jon. At last.
Seeing my guy’s excitement on Saturday when his quilt came off the frame was heartwarming. He’s been so patient.
There’s just so much that I love about this quilt. The improv block technique that Katie dreamed up and we played with last fall on a mini-retreat with Noelle, the Essex Linen (in this case yarn-dyed black) that’s a joy to work with,
a new set of pattern boards that coordinated perfectly, wool batting that gave it crazy stitch definition,
the check fabric binding that was a special request,
and the perfect backing fabric that I swear I found long after the blocks were made.
They don’t often come out exactly the way you see it in your head. Just wish I could hand stitch the binding a little faster.
