You are all so nice.

Thank you all so much for all of your kind comments about the book!  The response makes me so happy. It just reinforces all of the ideas behind the book concept.  It’s going to keep me super busy over the next few months so you’ll have to forgive me if the blog mellows as a result.   I’m going to try to keep at it though!

Meanwhile, I’ve finished the Lantern Bloom quilt top:

Putting a quilt together this way has made me want to do it all over again with my comfort zone colors.  I might just have to do that!

Hope that you all have great weekends that involve lots of sewing!

    Beautifully done! Oh and congrats on the book… I was out of town when you posted that so I didn’t manage to congratulate you then :)

    You know, the lantern blooms fabric is interesting, but I couldn’t ever quite figure out what to do with it–you have done a great job with those big prints!

    That is absolutely fabulous about the book! I know it will probably be a while until it comes out, but it will definitely be on my radar. I love your finished quilt top, just gorgeous.

    Amazing. Maybe one day I will learn how to use color that way, because THAT kind of color I do like very much.

    I love this quilt. It is so beautiful!! I hope to someday have this talent (I just finished my second quilt).

    I’ve loved Lantern since I first saw it, but this is the FIRST quilt I have seen out of it that makes it sing! Love it Alissa.

  18. Leonie October 23, 2009 at 6:43 pm #

    That has come together so well, it will be intersting to see it in another colourway. So quick to come together too! Beautiful.

  19. Joan October 23, 2009 at 7:21 pm #

    Lovely quilt! It’s just perfect!

  20. Catherine October 23, 2009 at 9:14 pm #

    Beautifully done. The solids really make those gorgeous Lantern Bloom fabrics stand out.

    The lantern bloom quilt is just beautiful. Well done.

  22. Penny October 24, 2009 at 4:33 am #

    It’s so pretty!! I just ordered my first bit of lantern bloom and love it! (in fact, it was probably a subconscious nudging from reading your blog!). I have the orange random pods and now I think I need more!

  23. October 24, 2009 at 6:32 am #

    Wow, gorgeous, and truly a “modern quilt”. I love that you planned around your initial blocks instead of planning first. It gives me more courage to try just creating and making the measuremets work instead of being “bound” by the math. Also, I’m so happy for you about your book. Your creativity knows no bounds!

  24. Jen October 25, 2009 at 4:50 am #
