Surprise - Fiber Content!

I have become a night-owl quilter. I went to the monthly Quilt In at Cotton Fields, which is the first time I've done any piecing since Quilt Camp in July! Quilt In is a marathon night of sewing, from 6pm to midnight. I got the rows put together and the final borders on Aurora Aura, which I started in a class with Karla Alexander.

I don't have backing for it, so it will languish in my longarm UFO pile for the near future.

I got to do some shopping with other people's money...of course that means that I don't get to keep any of it, oh darn! I chose some fabric from the "Urban Garden" line from Free Spirit to donate as a door prize for our state guild's fall meeting. My local chapter paid for it, I just did the shopping!

School is back in session. My husband teaches in the afternoon/evening, so my free time is taken up with Baby K. It seems like too much of a chore to drag out the sewing machine for an hour after she goes to bed, but I may go into withdrawal if I wait another month to do more quilting.

That is a beautiful quilt! I love the colors you chose. It has a lot of movement and remindes me of a nightime sea. So pretty.
