Daydream Quilt

Last month I road-tripped to Atlanta with Amy, Liz and Jacey for The Stash Bash. Amy was super-sweet to offer up her car for the trip, and even though it was the biggest car of the four of us, there wasn't going to be a whole lot of extra room once we got our sewing machines packed. So I tried to pack as light as I could. I figured this trip would be a great time to work on some long-lingering WIPs. I packed up 3 or 4, and was mighty proud of myself for being focused (and for not massively over-packing).

And then we got to GA. My smug attitude quickly turned into blah... I didn't want to work on ANY of the projects I brought. So what's a girl to do? SHOP!!

We had already planned for a stop at A Scarlet Thread in McDonough, GA so I picked up a Jelly Roll of Daydream by Kate Spain and a yard of purple sketch.

And before the weekend was over I had a completed quilt top.

Last weekend I quilted this up with a fast and easy meander. Sort of my re-acquaintance with the longarm... I really didn't mean to stay away from it for two months, but boy how time flies when you're busy, traveling, sick, etc!

And I LOVE the Kona I picked for the backing. That was a total cross-your-fingers-and-hope-for-the-best moment... I picked that shade with nothing more to reference than an Instagram picture of the quilt on my phone. But I don't think I could have purpously picked a better shade of purple!
