My summer was essentially relaxing, but frought with anxiety and of course, rainless sunshine which is especially rare in Seattle, particularly in July. Instead we got the national news about the “heat dome” and my family retreated to an air-conditioned hotel on Pride Sunday.
Pride Hotel was conceived then, but it was Zak Foster’s prompt to make an “unblock of the month” that inspired me to finish piecing it and turn it into a mini quilt. It seemed too glaringly bright in white so I added a reverse applique layer of silk organza. I have been making a lot of mini quilts lately while I work on a lot of UFOs with the hope of being more prolific and entering more shows in 2021 and beyond. Wish me luck!
