And I've started working again on the stitchery blocks for the Your Home or Mine block of the month by Lynette Anderson designs. I've made a lot of good progress this week and hope to have this quilt completed in the next week. Or two...depending on how well I can control my quilting attention deficit disorder! But I'm hoping to stay on task...I actually made all 52 nine-patches needed for that quilt today (they're 3 1/2" finished...and I think I might have accidentally made 53...oh well)!
Recently I read a wonderful post titled "My Perfect Quilt" by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company; this post has so much wonderful food for thought in it...and so many ideas about the joy that quilting should bring to each of us. If you haven't already read this, I highly recommend it!
And...it was one year ago today that I started blogging! I've had so much fun being inspired by other bloggers and have learned many, many things that have improved my quilting and heightened my awareness of pattern, color, contrast, value and scale. I've visited blogs from all over the world, and bloggers from all over the world have visited here. I've been inspired by your projects, and my "to do" list has grown and grown and grown! I've learned about new products, patterns, books, and artists. I've asked lots of questions and received wonderful answers from many of you--thank you, truly. So, of course I want to have a giveaway to celebrate. Because of the 4th of July holiday weekend, though, I'm going to start my giveaway next week...so be sure to check back! And have a wonderful weekend!
