FO: Adelaide

A few months back, I had a quilt pattern published in Quilt Now.
This was such an exciting achievement for me, and I really have no excuse as to why I'm just now sharing it here.

It's a fun and bright nine-patch quilt, and I used some very favorite prints to make a scrappy, happy quilt.

I quilted it in a simple crosshatch, and used my top-three favorite Joel Dewberry herringbone in navy for the binding.

It's backed in other stash favorites; I just love a scrappy quilt back.

Have a lovely week, friends!

FO: Orchid Thief

If you're not a knitter, you may not know this: a shawl isn't finished until it has been blocked. Before blocking, a shawl is just an undefined blob. But with blocking, there's magic.

The pattern emerges.

It becomes airy and delicate.

And it only took me 8 months after knitting to "finish" this one.

Why is that?

FO: Strings

I'm embarrassed to say that this one lingered. Back in April, I shared my plan for simple string blocks with my do.Good Stitches circle.

The blocks are fun and fast to make. However, I didn't get the top assembled right away, but I really love it.

It's full of bright colors and happiness. At least, I hope so.

Although, a black and white version would be pretty amazing.

I attended a local retreat this weekend, which is where the cabin photos were taken!
