[my kids loved Modern Domestic. I teased them the next day that we had to go back, and they said, OKAY! What???]
For my birthday a few months ago, my in-laws surprised me with a gift certificate to Modern Domestic, a beautiful quilt shop/sewing studio in Portland. Seriously, every town should have a shop like this. I have wanted to make a quilt for my bed for… years (we sleep under a quilt from Ikea!), and the gift certificate + birthday money from my parents to long arm the quilt + a beautiful wall of Cotton + Steel fabric was just the impetus I needed. I’m not sure when it will actually get done, but that is besides the point, right?
I had to supersize the blocks (I’m keeping Faith’s original 10 block layout) and can’t wait to share more progress. Hopefully soon! Also, I participated in Tracey’s Cotton + Steel 10 square swap, so I think I’m going to be crazy and sew the squares together (probably in color order) for the back. Why not, right?
