Back at work in the studio after a 4 month hiatus.
Added a few neutrals to my palette I found on a recent trip to Lake Superior.
(Orchard's Edge Quilt Shop, Bayfield, WI and Hannah Johnson Fabrics, Duluth, MN)
Getting rid of the former 8'x8' design board is a sacrifice, but have gained so much more space and sanity as a result of karate chopping it into oblivion.

The top is finished in late September 2015 and on its way to my Amish hand-quilter. I expect it back sometime in the spring of 2016. This piece has been an incredible journey for me, taking over a year to complete (the top) - and one of the most significant events of my adult life occurred during its creation - the return of my mother after a 22 year absence.
Binding is on! February 2016
Finally done! February 13, 2016
