Quilt/Stash Project-2020--
Determined Quilter

Thursday, April 29,2010..Year 2...Week 37...Blog 55...Day 262 of 4,014


This has been an interesting week..both in what has happened...and what did not happen.

What did not happen

1.After finishing the delighful, small pastel wall hanging with Jsapanese theme fabric..Yes!!! using ALL those scraps and stash...

I thought..why not give the "real" Japanese fabric another "go"...both with the fabric given in about 1995...and the new fabric bought at the Yokohama quilt show in November 2009. Well I did concentrate..work..strug.g.l.e for about two days..it refused to come together..

2. Then..the nice young couple living across the driveway are have their first baby--a girl..due now...so use soft blue/pink blocks and scrap fabric for a baby quilt....well I did concentrate..work...strug.g.l.e with that for about two days..it refused to come together.

So...what to do...ESCAPE...and start somthing entirely different...fabric and blocks waiting patiently since?????????

And what lovely excitement...

This has a history.....CIRCLES....... I first learned circles from Carole Liebzeit at Empty spools Seminars in 2005...I was super lucky to have such a gifted teacher.....

because the quilt I made with Carole's guidance is one of my very favorites....

Don;t have time on this half/hour computer to give full history of that adventure today....but THAT first circle quilt gave me exactly the right inspiration and direction to happily work on my current quilt...

..it is a fantastic range of fabric/colors...and I WILL get my thoughts together to describe for a blog next week..

Then....another "success"!!!...for $3,50 this morning I found exactly the 'right" backing fabric for another success....to be described next blog...yes!! sometimes "rules' do have to be suspended...to accomplish the goals..

then..to professional quilter tomorrow....THREE quilt tops...

made in clases..with the designs of Kaffe Fassett..Sylvia Einstein and Loraine Torrance..

Next week a "better" computer......and more news...

"small" victories/accomplishments???

Well..Rome was not built in a day....

Happy Quilting...Determined Quilter.
