I realized that I haven’t posted anything about the finished Plain Spoken quilt that I made. I actually finished it before leaving Vancouver and, thankfully, remembered to take some pictures before giving it away. It was a labor of love and long one at that but I am really happy with how it turned out. I think the next quilting project I take on will be decidedly smaller though. I was daydreaming about a beautiful tea cozy yesterday and that’s about the size of project I can handle.

Here it is. To give you an idea of the size, that’s my 5’10” Man of all Men modeling the quilt for us. I quilted it in a sort of wave or cloud pattern (depending on which way you look at it). I love the end result but it was a lot of work using a straight-stitch walking foot system.
