Here are some little mini quilts I've been working on while watching the football/soccer this week. They're on their way to Missouri, Washington, DC, and France, respectively (so if you live in one of those places, you might not want to scroll down through this post!). The first is an apron (just in case that's not obvious). The other two are inspired by other items in my kitchen at all times: olives and licorice. (I don't eat them together, don't worry!) If you click on the second two photos, you can see that I'm playing around a little with pearl cotton.
If you've been hunting for a copy of Gwen Marston's Liberated Quiltmaking, you might want to head over to Tonya's blog for information about a possible reprint. (Here she compares Liberated Quiltmaking to Collaborative Quilting.) She's gotten a tremendous response so far!
