I suddenly felt the need to concentrate on this and another quilt that I've never finished. I guess life has being a bit crazy around here that what I was craving is that peaceful rhythm making something [perfect] and by repetition. No, I'm not saying I make perfect quilts, it's more like a "I can control the outcome" kind of thing.
I worked on my quilt in the quiet mornings while the girls were at school. The blocks are mostly "birds in the air." Some are just the whole 8 by 8 in. squares. I used all the little bits of Timber and leaf that I had so some of the blocks are logcabins, and 9 patch blocks. I really don't mind that the blocks are different this time. I love that fox fabric!
I have all the rows sewn, 11 total. Next week, when I'm done with my printmaking, I'll sew my rows together.
It was a long time since I paid attention to this quilt. I'm glad I can pull this kind of projects out when in need. It feels good to have an arsenal of crafty activities, musical instruments, and a nice kitchen for find my cool again.
Talking about repetition, let me show you the stationary I printed the other day...
my very own stationary!! It's an edition of 20 prints on card stock. I printed them one by one with my etching press.
