Quilting, take one.

Whitney and I decided to try quilting for the first time. We got a bunch of books at the library, and I loved just about everything in this one on Amish and Mennonite quilts. I decided to do a Chinese Coin quilt, like this one by Oh Fransson!:

Mine's going to be in dark browns and olive greens, and I've got a lot of the patches cut out, though I still have a fair amount to do, and a need a few more fabrics. I'm more than a little obsessed with stacking the patches, then laying them out to look at how they look side-by-side. I've never done a crafty project that has taken as long as this one will. I'm excited to start sewing, though.
