Half a quilt, all pieced
Well, here's the pieced top for the "half a quilt". (The applique cat half a quilt is just getting started. I wanted to have one ready for the cooler fall nights.) This one is 50" x 82", and was made with a charm pack of Moda Tranquility, two yard of a print from that collection, and orange and neutral scraps. I'm very happy with it; I think it qualifies as bright. Husband said he likes it, so that's all that matters because it was made for him. I'm not sure how it will be quilted. I could stitch in the ditch, but I'd like to send it to the longarmer and let her do some sort of pattern allover. She can do denser quilting than I'm comfortable attempting. Anyway, I have a few weeks to decide because my longarm quilter is gone on vacation - to Alaska. Boy, I'm jealous.
