adrienne and shaun's reversible quilt throw (a wedding gift)
machine-pieced and hand-quilted liberty of london cotton print, linen, and all natural cotton batting
50" x 64 3/8"

the quilt is finally done! i'm patting myself on the back since i can be a procrastinator, but not this time! the wedding is a little over a month away, so i've got plenty of time to excitedly think about my july 4 in vancouver (how unpatriotic of me to leave the states) and a trip to new york for the wedding festivities. but i wouldn't be my restless self if i didn't start delving into my next quilt. i've had some ideas stewing for some time now and i can't wait to get going on something new.

i've noticed that i'm really into white peaches and nectarines. they're not so in-your-face and they seem less tart than the more common yellow peaches. above, "polar light" peach variety and "yen yen" nectarine from the sunday farmer's market.

i took a little break from the blog to finish this bad boy, and guess what? finished!! it's such a nice feeling to see something through to absolute completion - especially if you've got some other quilt designs in mind. pics to come. in the meantime, i introduce you to my cousins curly-haired cat, b.v. we spent some quality time this weekend, as i did some last minute cat sitting. i find b.v. fascinating because she's unlike most cats. she's not particularly graceful and she's so deadpan. i've never met a more serious looking kitty, though she is definitely the sweetest. i also think she's the funniest - whether she means to be or not.
