newcomers and 2 more down
the top row of pinks are various designer fabrics i got at the quilt shop. i was already using the eiffel tower print in red, so adding the pink version felt natural. the diamond pattern and dot pattern echoed other prints i already had, also. i'm still a bit unsure about the rather strange dots on the turquoise. it's a perfect fit color-wise, but i'm not sure if the pattern is in keeping with the feel i had going.
the other four prints on the bottom were some quite lovely bits i discovered at joann crafts. they're not technically designer prints, but they meld very well and were good quality. they pass muster nicely.
since i neglected to bring along extra hexies, i only completed one block and mostly basted shapes in the new prints. having an almost two year old along also severely limited my production. this is the last time she's invited as a business traveler, not only because she no longer flies free but because she is a travel nightmare these days.
general conference weekend and completed one more on the road. or, actually, in the air - 5 hour flight, you know.
for now, this quilt is intended for me when it's complete. i wonder who it will go to eventually and if it will be much wanted? "hey, i get the quilt mom made by hand! i remember her working on it for years, everywhere we went. i want it!" maybe. or maybe no one will care.
