Summer in Austin is much more conducive to quilting than knitting. The thought of sitting under a hot task lamp with 3 feet of silk in my lap with the AC cranked is not very appealing. Consequently Hanami is hibernating for a few days while I resurrect an old quilting WIP.
The brown coin quilt I started last September has been hanging on the back of my studio door for 10 months now. This week I took it down, gave it a good press and finally sewed on the remaining border strips. The only decision I have left to make is which fabric to use for the backing. The red is a perfect colour match with the top, but I'm not jazzed about the busyness of the white flower repeats. The yellow-green doesn't necessarily coordinate as well colour-wise, but it's a more sophisticated print. I'm leaning towards the green, but I can't make up my mind.
