Back in the saddle

Well ... that was a longer hiatus from quilting than I had anticipated ... first there was too much going on, there there too little time, and the then was just down right apathy ...

But I'm back!  I started this one earlier in year.  Then it got set aside ... in fact, it got set aside for so long that the sun actually bleached out one of the edges as it sat folded on a spare bed for 6+ months ...

But this weekend, I pulled it out and and pulled it together ...


Is I wrote in my previous post on this one ... I wasn't quite sure what to do with it after I completed the top.  In the end ... this one is for John.  He loved it and he's got a couple of tough months ahead with treatments ... so I told him when he feels like crap ... he can wrap this around and it will miraculously make him feel better ;-).

My inspiration was the "Richard Nixon throw" shown in a photo from Feeling is Mutual blog where the following image was posted.

It's the first time I've done a solid back ... but it is a slightly textured fabric, so it does give it a little bit of movement.



I don't really have enough quilts this year to do a full capture ... but I'm on a roll for 2013, with two baby commissioned quilts (my first) due by the end of January!

Hope you all have a Happy, Healthy & Safe New Year!
