This is just a quick little entry for a quick little quilt. I'm going to make a few simple, easy lap-sized quilts for our living room, so we can discard a couple of old polyester blankets that have outlived their natural lifespan. I'm wanting to spend more time practicing my quilting, so having a few quilts that I'm keeping means I can practice my stitching on a non-critical project -- I have two coming up that are heavily dependent on the quality of the quilting stitches, and I needed some practice time.

The name? Don't read anything into it. While Jacob was visiting this weekend, I showed him my stash of Liberty fabrics. I love their classic pattern 'Strawberry Thief,' and while I was driving him to the airport he mused, "I wonder if there is a kissing thief?"

"I think there is now!" I responded.
