Thanks to Quilt Dad for showing me some love on Twitter! Thanks also to those who are visiting my fledgling blog for the first time and giving me such a warm welcome to the Blogosphere!.
My wife and I are headed to a concert today, leaving our 11 month old with a friend, and reveling in our first "date" sans baby since she was born! Some anxiety with mom, but I will be focused on encouraging her to enjoy the concert and dispel visions of disaster at home. Everything will be fine (right?).
I am now halfway thru my log cabin quilt top for my in-laws. The colors are warm and the patterns are nature-themed, which is perfect for a cold, bleak midwinter in Russia. Actually it's not really bleak (I am being dramatic), but you do spend lots of time inside, and hopefully this quilt will warm them and cheer them! Here's another sneak peek at a block.
As you can tell, I love orange. My first big quilt was in these same fall colors, and I can't seem to stop using them. My next one will definitely be cooler colors, I promise!
