more production

The first snow carving quilt is finished and I have enough blocks like this one for two, maybe three more depending on how I lay them out and how large I make them. It's hours in the day that I don't have enough of.

The market presented itself unexpectedly and I have to take advantage of it. Still having fun balancing utility and fun design. I wish there was a safe and reliable way to incorporate my own hand dyed cloth in these but kids quilts have to be made to take a lot of wash, wear and tear and I know from personal experience that the hand dyed vintage cloth would be sad shreds before too long.

There will be time enough after the holiday for full-on art making. By then it will feel like pure luxury.
