Yes, I am working on my jacket. However, I often have more than one project in the pipeline. My first loves (garment sewing and altered couture) tend to get the lion's share of my attention, but every once in a while another project calls to me. I started this wallhanging quilt this past summer. It was another time intensive kind of thing because I designed the cat applique, the top was machine pieced and then the cat was hand appliqued into place.
Then, I hand quilted the top to the other layers and hand closed the binding. I learned hand quilting on a hockey trip with my son to the outskirts of Amish Country in Pennsylvania. I happened by a quilt shop when two Mennonite women were demonstrating the technique. Up until that point, though I'd tried to follow instructions in books, it had just not really sunk in. Seeing them do it made all the difference!
I think it's a really cheerful piece. I love the bright colors in the batik squares, which were purchased as a set from Jo-Ann's. It'll make a really nice hanging on someone's wall. Ok, enough procrastinating... back to my jacket!
