Progress all around!
There has been progress on my quilt and progress with knitting! I find myself with more and more WIPs these days. I was always a one or two projects in the works person, but now... not so much.
First of all, the quilt top is done and I really love it.
I was very afraid of the mitered corners on the border but Gina, my great quilting teacher met me over at the shop this morning and refreshed my memory. They look pretty great if I do say so myself. It's not perfect by any means but I love all of the fabrics. I'm planning on a dark binding with some pops of color and haven't quite decided about the back yet. Thoughts, anyone?
Here is a close-up of some of the blocks:
The top needs another press but other than that and a backing... it's ready to quilt!
In knitting news, I'm loving the book Itty Bitty Hats. Maybe it's because I have another Itty Bitty and my brother and sister in law are having their first itty bitty in a few months. Baby hats are so cute and fast. What's not to love? I'm working on one for my soon-to-be-born niece right now:
This Ultra Alpaca Light is going to be something fun but I don't want to mention details just yet....
