The thing about glitter is if you get it on you, be prepared to have it on you forever. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.

Summer Quilt Revisited

So the quilt that I began last week has taken a direction all its own.  The pattern – remember the randomly unrandom reverse linear design I poorly described in the last post – has been abandoned, having failed to overcome the Andrea element impacting its assembly.  I’m not sure how I screwed this up, but screw it up I did. 

But optimism shall prevail!  I started out with an idea for a random patchwork design, and after over thinking the whole thing to such an extent as to eliminate any intended randomness (note to self: all randomness is lost when combined with over thinking), I have produced something even nicer than initially visualized. 

Plus I`ve changed my mind about going batting-free as the overall effect was more of a bulky sheet than a quilt.  But minus a few little insignificant alterations to the original plan, the quilt is coming to fruition. 

Here`s a little sneak peek of the quilt top to hold you over till the final product can be unveiled.  I`m sure you`re just as eagerly awaiting this reveal as yours truly.


 I just love the look of patchwork with the sun shining through!!
