I've had my copy of Material Obsession 2 for a long, long time now and placed a number of their gorgeous quilts on my long, long term crafty list of things to do (some of the designs beg for hand piecing and quilting which I would love to brave... um... someday... just not this day you see). That was until I caught of glimpse of the Erica's Honesty quilt from pictures of the Alewives booth at the Maine Quilt Show this past weekend (see Brooke's amazing haul and inspirational photos here). As one of the last quilts in the book, I guess I just missed it. It is simply amazing. Now, I'm quilt obsessed.
So here's my thinking... I know, realistically, that these entirely unrealistic, unproductive and beautiful summer days are drawing to a close for this English teacher. It's August and in a mere few weeks it will be books and grading and this semester - grad classes complete with a bit of a commute. I'm ok with that... for now. So how to fit this lovely quilt into all that? My goal is one block a month... more next summer when I have this beautiful time to myself and my sewing all over again. So, we'll see how it goes. I know there will be months that fly by, life and work will become beautifully hectic and harried as they tend to do, but I think this little lovely project will be a reminder of these beautifully free days and the ones on the horizon. I think I'm more than ok with that. Happy Monday!
