Lots of it in this quilt!


Plus a little gray and just a tiny bit of golden yellow. And I seem to be on a dense straight line quilting kick these days.

A friend from the LAMQG is adopting from Ethiopia and I made this quilt for Linus, her little baby boy!

Otherwise, did you see that Challenge 3 of Project Modern was announced? Check it out here!

    I really like this one. To me, it’s very fresh. I especially love those little striped scraps, and the orange ones, too!

    Love that quilt! The colors are wonderful and the quilting is lovely. I haven’t tried the dense line quilting yet, but I think you might have just pushed me over the edge on that one!

    It’s beautiful! I love the tilted blue blocks. And I love the solids surrounding the random blocks. What a wonderful gift to give. Are you going to enter that Project Modern challenge? I love the theme of being inspired by the word Organic.

    What a beautiful quilt! The straight line quilting is such a perfect contrast to those off kilter squares. It just seems so joyful! I’m sure your friend and her new son will love it.

    Oh Alissa, I love it so!!!! Will be sending you real pen and ink correspondence very soon, but I couldn’t resist shouting to the rafters how much I love, love, love it. Sorry I did not make it to the mtg tonight..I just completely ran out of fuel from the excitement of the past few days. Will be in touch soon!

    YAY!! This is such happy news. Sweet Linus will know the love you stitched into this quilt for him.

    There is not a luckier boy on this planet.
