Feels like I haven't finished anything for a long time. Been working mostly. I did finish a top from awhile ago, and have been putting blocks on the design wall and putting tops together. They are mostly quick things.

I started this top in a class at the Quilters Gathering in Nashua last November. It was a two day "Strips and Curves" workshop with Louisa Smith and it was fabulous! I have had the partial top and all the strip sets and fabric sitting on a chair in my studio since, telling myself that someday I will have the time. 
I decided to make the time this weekend, and I just love this, the process and the way it's coming along. I have lots of work (play) left, making spiked arcs, different sized arcs, playing with placement and color. It is far from done. These are 9" blocks, so as is will be 54" square. Borders might be another opportunity for additional design, but I haven't decided yet. Another day.
