quilt strips

Sometimes I wonder what I'm thinking, starting a new quilt in the midst of so many other things, but it's pretty obvious that I crave a new quilt project because of all the other things. It's calming to me to sort through the fabrics and put them together in a new way. Plus, I like the colors.

It's been hot here (85 degrees is hot for us) so I'm really loving all the blues and greens. They make me think of cool water under green leaves. A little like this:
