Checkers quilt: checked!

Yet another UFO finished! And it looks fantastic!

Luckily for me, there are only 2 more UFOs! Yeah! One by one they are finishing and it really feels great…I really do not have the strength to start a new quilt (except for orders, of course).
You can learn more about this one in a previous posts here. And yes! it is a very old ufo!

I also managed to make a cool pillow cover for our super brand new sofa. I used those “deers in glasses” from Echino fabrics for the front and an amazing fabric from Julie Paschkis (a really talented fabric designer).

Now on this week’s statistics

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.

I love the binding on the checkerboard quilt. I’m noticing more and more how the binding effects the overall look of the quilt and really loving the more interesting ones with stripes, polka dots, and other shapes.

Ooh I just love the pillow! It’s so happy, with its lovely splash of color. And good for you for knocking out your WIPs, I’m completely envious of your resolve and self-control!
