So many quilts!

It's been pretty quiet on the blog lately, not because I haven't been working on anything but because I've just simply been too lazy to write blog posts. Over the next two weeks, I'm going to power through and show you all the quilts.

This quilt is called Evening Twilight, inspired by the long shadows cast as the sun sets. It's actually one in a pair of quilts that I designed and planned to write up as a pattern years ago. But, like most things where I have to write something, I was too lazy and never got around to it. If I can find my notes, I'll put up a tutorial for both quilts later this summer.

The back is made up of several large cuts of flannel. I was so, so happy to finally use that grey Anna Maria Horner print. It's been in my stash forever! My blue/green flannel stash is now down to pretty much nothing which feels great!!

This quilt went to live with my friend Jason and his family. Looking at these pictures reminds me that I watched Harry and the Hendersons while I was piecing the back and basting the quilt. It was a particularly fitting movie to watch while finishing up this quilt because Jason, Harry and I share a great love of animals and we're all also vegetarians. Do you remember that movie? Remember when Harry was upset when he saw the deer head mounted on the wall? As a kid, I was upset too. As an adult, I'm even more upset. For a dumb 80's movie, it was surprisingly thoughtful with a surprisingly sweet message.

Anyway, one quilt down, 4 to go!
