I've finally arrived at that moment in the making of a quilt that excites me most: sewing the blocks together. With a quilt of many colors, I needed to retreat to the floor again to audition blocks for their proper place.
Aren't the colors delicious? Sewing a large quilt together feels a bit like wrestling an alligator.
I'm building a sizable mountain of scraps!
I need to find some little projects! I got out of the studio for a few hours this morning to canvas the book store for fresh inspiration. The beginning of the month always brings a pile of new magazines with it.
This one is fantastic! This is just one of the quilts waiting to be sewn:
There were also many lovely quilts in this one:
In addition to all of the tempting projects, there is an interesting interview with fabric designer Stephanie Brandenburg of Frond Design Studios. It offers some insight into the process of crafting beautiful fabric designs.
The next time I share quilting news, I should be finished sewing the Rainbow Connection quilt. I also have a trip to quilters' haven, Lancaster County, PA in the works to celebrate my birthday. My bank card will be smokin' :) I'll meet with you again soon!
Until next time,
