It's been a busy few weeks and there's plenty to show for it! On top of our city having the snowiest month in 50 years(!) and marking Eight Years of blogging, I've completed a variety of projects.
A long-term finish was my Summer Sampler Road Trip quilt! You may remember that the sewalong had us sewing one block a week throughout the summer, with all blocks based on exotic places around the world. Considering how much I enjoyed the sewalong, it feels really great having this one done. Oh, and the quilting was done by Cascadia Quilts, and Cindy's handiwork really added to the vibe of the quilt.
Another project I'm really enamored with is Quad, a table runner I created after participating in a One Week Improv Challenge hosted by Amy's Creative Side. Receiving daily prompts, I played with several improvisational techniques, which was really enjoyable in among other projects. I just couldn't resist finishing the runner with one more improv tweak. Check out my blog post if you're curious what that was!
Mary/[marymenzerdesigns]'s Stormy Waters used one of my favorite improv techniques - the basic line. The quilt's name totally fits! Look close to see Mary's dense quilting and how it accentuates those lines.

I was hard-pressed when I happened upon this Log Cabin quilt made by Rebecca/
[greenandbell]. I had just finished blogging about some gorgeous quilt photoshoots when I saw Rebecca's stunning shot of her lovely quilt. Love it. Love the quilt! Win-win.

Krystina/KH Quilts' Tidal Wave is another one that I've explored again and again! The design is just so clever! And isn't that pale peach background the perfect - and unique - choice?! Indeed.
