happy labor day!


Last year, while on a trip to Baltimore, I stumbled across Kathreen Ricketson's Little Bits Quilting Bee in a bookstore and was immediately inspired by the patterns I saw. I plan to make many of the book's quilts, and this past weekend, I finished the top (and backing!) for my first one: Prismatic. I'm starting to stockpile quilts for this winter, and this one is destined for our bed. My stash of light blue fabrics was beginning to get out of control, so I put them to good use for this project, and thankfully they'll coordinate well with our bedroom decor. Now, I just need to figure out how to quilt it. Straight lines or orange peel?

  1. Love it! I'm just finishing up a very similar quilt (in grey and green) and am struggling with how to quilt it, too. I can't free motion quilt, but I think the orange peel could look really cool on that. I think I'm probably going to be outlining the design, starting from the inside and working my way out. Can't wait to see it when it's finished!
