Quilt mojo is a very delicate thing. Because of its portability, my knitting has won out over quilting recently, but now that summer's here, my quilt mojo has returned.
First, I had a long-standing UFO, my Hat Box quilt (design by Kaffe Fassett), quilted by my pal Debra Dixon. Debra does high quality affordable machine quilting. I scrolled through my photo library to find these 2009 pictures of the finished top, which I made from a couple of books of home dec fabric samples.

Voila! The quilted and bound quilt. It's hard to photograph because it's big and it's cloudy here today.
Here it's draped on a king sized bed. I'm very happy with the completed quilt.
Since I was digging through the stash for binding fabrics, I found a piece of fleece perfect for a baby quilt back, and a pack of fat quarters in grey and white. I also had a perfect piece of yellow gingham.
In a few days I had the baby quilt done. Here you can see it with the inspirational fleece backing.
Once I started digging through my stash, the creative wheels started to turn. There are more quilts in the works...
