As soon as I could, I jumped back into quilting after arriving home from vacation late last Saturday. I unpacked Sunday morning, tried to get some things organized (like laundry and the mail), then jumped in the car and drove through torrential rain (courtesy of Tropical Storm Debby, now thankfully departed) to Joann's to pick up my sewing machine. I had it cleaned and serviced while we were away, thus avoiding Machine Separation Anxiety and other potentially psyche-damaging events while still having the necessary machine maintenance performed!
First things first:
You can see the other bath mat styles that I'm currently offering in my Etsy store.
The irregular grid pattern of the blocks in this quilt opened up some interesting quilting possibilities. I considered a number of options, then decided to go with an irregular pattern of a large zig zag meandering through the quilt, with stipples filling in the rest.
