hot and cold

hot and cold, top

I've been frantically working on a quilt submission for the Modern Quilt Guild Showcase at the International Quilt Festival in Houston this fall. It's due Friday. I started it on Sunday afternoon after a wave of inspiration hit.

The top is done. It's a mix of linen, linen/cotton blends, shot cottons, and a few Suzuko Koseki prints thrown in for fun. I think it measures around 55" square? I'll measure after I quilt it, which I suppose should happen tonight. Doh! I'm running out of time! Send me fast quilting vibes.
