I was invited to join in on the Around the World Blog Hop by Michele of Island Life Quilts. I have been following Michele for a long time and enjoy seeing her bright, modern quilts. I especially love all the little bags she makes. The quilting motifs she uses to quilt her own quilts are always inspiring.
Why do I create?
For one thing, it keeps me off the streets and out of the bars...LOL.
But really, I just love it.
My favorite part is selecting the fabrics for a project and then I like the challenge of piecing the quilt as best I can.
Quilting also provides me with a community.
What am I working on?
What am I not working on! I just want to make them all.
Here is a sampling:
'All Hallow's Eve'
This is a Sew Along I designed for The Olde World Quilt Shoppe blog.
Anything small really makes me happy!
I am a big fan of Kim Diehl and just finished stitching down 'Penny Garland.' Wool applique has really become a favorite medium for me. Here is another work in progress designed by Kim Diehl and using wool applique.
Finishes are not my forte, but here is a recent one that even has a binding...my least favorite part of the process.
Oh, the list of projects is endless, and I always have a new one brewing in my mind. I recently took on a part time job at my LQS and my duties include selecting patterns and fabrics. Boy, am I in heaven!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time today to stitch and create too.
