Big Messy Pile In My Garage

Remember when the fabric we dyed with indigo told me it wanted to be a quilt?
I didn’t listen right away.  First I made some napkins.
Then, for some reason to do with people visiting and using my car and me being disorganized, it all ended up in a big messy pile in my garage. That’s right, the garage. 
But now it’s all alright because I spent my afternoon sewing it into quilt squares.  
Have I ever mentioned – over and over again – that I loooooooove improvising a quilt together.  Love it.  I can’t imagine that following a pattern is even half this much fun.
I also love linen and have taken a ridiculous number of close up
and far away
 and close up pictures.
I made seven squares today.
I’ll probably make nine all together,  Maybe twelve, I don’t know.
I think this is my favorite.  
So here’s another picture of it.
This one I’m going to just keep in one piece.
I haven’t sewn for a while and it was so fun to do.  
I remember once telling a friend of mine that I had figured out how to make quilting go really fast.  Then I realized that I didn’t actually speed up the process, I was just enjoying myself so much that time was flying.
