We’re 5 months in! Crazy.
It’s been a good month, and I’ve been eager to lay everything out. Several of these blocks have been in hiding, because they use my new fabrics. Yay!
I originally started out with a narrower selection of greens, but now I’m including much more of a range, and I’m really liking it. Some are darker, some are lighter, some are more green or more olive–it’s such a mix!
The mix of neutral backgrounds is also making me happy.
Highlights this month have been embracing such a mix and getting it all laid out for the first time. I’d been working with everything in a stack, and so spreading it out to take these photos has been quite satisfying. I’m also really glad that I worked a little ahead for the month. Today is the first day of set up at Quilt Market, and I’ve been heavily prepping for the show!
In terms of entertaining things, I really got into the podcast Last Seen about the art heist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. It’s really captivating and very detailed, and it’s kind of making me want to read more about this heist and others in general.
Goals for next month? I’m happy to have quite a bit prepped, so I can probably mindlessly plug away or if I get inspired I may decide to prep the final blocks. We will see.
How’s your month been?
