We are just getting ready to return home from our adventure in England. As this post goes live, we’ll probably be on a plane. So many mixed emotions about leaving. But I’ll save that for another day when I can process them. And more to share about what we’ve seen when I can process my pictures properly as well.
So until then here’s a quick peek at the Tile Quilt top I pieced using the Denyse Schmidt Hadley strips for the class I was teaching at the Fat Quarterly retreat. I didn’t have enough luggage space to bring a finished quilt, so I pieced a new version of just the top to share with the class. I’m in love with how it’s turning out. I’ve been pushing myself to use backgrounds besides white and those Hadley strips played SO nicely with this Bamboo neutral.
My plan for the past month has been to take pictures of it with some stunning, scenic backdrop. It’s been traveling around with us for weeks and I’d never remember to take it out – until literally almost our last day in England I made my family drive down random country roads to find a good spot for photographs.
So here’s a glimpse. And you can tell it had been packed around all that time by the fact that it was sorely in need of ironing. Oh well! I was not going to cart that quilt around for 4 weeks in vain and not get some pictures. Ironed or not.
Will check in again soon after we’ve had time to start getting our lives put back together at home!
