Turns out being sick isn't so bad for getting things finished. It's really pretty comforting to snuggle under a big quilt like this and slowly stitch on the binding. Comfort and productivity simultaneously. This is my 9th finish. I started this quilt when my mom was ill last fall. I was pretty blue about it for a long time. I'm not blue about it any longer. "Feeling Blue" is queen sized and at home in my guest bedroom.
The quilting is by my friend Angela and again a wonderful collaboration. She stepped way out of her comfort zone to do something very geometric and wonky for me. It was her idea to do the large connecting shapes which maybe you can see if you enlarge the photos. You'll all simply have to come visit to see this one in person.
I love the blocks, the negative space, the quilting, the binding. It's so great when something you're not sure of comes together. And I get to keep it. (Oh, and the back is pretty cool too, but I forgot to take photos of that!)
