Day-quilting

I'm making progress now, faster than I can blog about. These photos show four full rows, but I'm actually up to six! Day-quilting helps the progress along: the "Crafty-Lunches" my coworker and I inaugurated last week helped. Otherwise I've been avoiding the blistering heat and sun on weekends by sitting inside on the window seat happily piecing. Cat at my feet, whipstitching, breeze through the window. Bliss. The quilt is really starting to take shape now. Amazing.

In other quilt-related news: my ├╝ber-talented quilter-author cousin—whom I blame entirely for this new obsession of mine—has launched her new website! Check it out here. And see the quilt that started it all for me.

When we were in Massachusetts, I took advantage of the cat-free space to lay out about 17 of 30 rows of hexagons.
A little more than half of the quilt is planned out now, which makes it easy
to grab a row's worth and sneak in some stitch-time.
