I finished this quilt top recently. It’s the first project I have started and completed during the pandemic. Jo and I masked up and went to the local quilting store a few months ago, back when the numbers in our area weren’t terrifying, and he was like, “Pick out whatever you want, my treat.”

I wanted to do something soft and low-contrast. Subtle. Gentle.

I second guessed my fabric choices along the way a fair bit — I wasn’t sure my ‘dark’ fabric was actually dark enough, but I’m actually really pleased with the end result.

Once it is safe to do so I will hire a longarm quilter to quilt this for me, and I’ll probably bind it in the same fabric I used to do the super simple border there — just to keep it clean.

It’s not quite big enough to cover my big-ass bed, but even so, I think we’ll keep this one rather than gift it to someone LoL
