I've been on vacation from work for the past week and I don't have to go back until January 12, so I've been in project mode around here (home, Christmas, knitting, sewing and otherwise)
First up is a quilt that I made my aunt Dani for Christmas...
I first saw this kit/pattern at a quilt show in October 2007. It's the Habitat Quilt by Fourth and Sixth designs. At the time, the booth was sold out and rather than special ordering it, I let it go. Then, earlier this year, I saw the same quilt kit at a different quilting show and it was in stock, so I scooped it up. I've had this sitting in my sewing room since March. In August I washed and cut out the fabric and then I let it sit for another four months and did a marathon quilting/cutting session last Monday and Tuesday. I finished it just in time for Christmas.
The fabric for this quilt was hand-dyed, so it has a slightly mottled and suede look to it. I really liked the texture and dimension it adds to the quilt.
I did my standard free motion stippling on the quilt. The quilt measures 50" x 58" and is composed of 56 blocks and a small border around the edge.
