This is such a fun pattern, "Sidelights." Great for a focus fabric. I think I might call my quilt, "Hockey Mom." I know...a completely strange name! I bought the focus fabric while traveling with my son to a hockey tournament in Colorado Springs...many...many...many years ago. I jumped at the chance to put my sons on traveling hockey teams because I went on every trip too...just for the opportunity to visit quilt shops around the country.
I'm rather addicted to "J" hook feathers...this time I added some circles on the spine.
And the quilting continues!
"Tropical Waters," is off the frame. This quilt is a variation of a free pattern called "Ripples," on the Anthology Fabrics website. Mine is without borders and I made sure to rotate the blocks of strips so a horizontal block laid next to a vertical block."Ripples," had a more random layout. Like many quilters....I have control issues when it comes to random layouts.
I had the sweetest piece of batik for the binding...a striped-tie-dyed piece...I'm pretty sure I bought it on a hockey trip too. It is nicely aged fabric.
And...I've got another small quilt loaded on frame.
Frustratingly, I need to dedicate my day tomorrow to dealing with paperwork for renewal of my French visa. My husband was allowed a three-year visa but not trouble-maker-Debbie! I will have to renew every year. Pictures...fingerprints...sign here...sign there. I hate bureaucracy in any country.
