Sue asked us to create haphazard plus sign blocks for May. I really enjoyed digging through my scrap bin to find bits of fabric from some of her favorite designers, and I got to use some new low volume fabrics that I just received in a swap! Sue mentioned that she would be happy to trim the four blocks to 8.5-inches and sew them into the larger final block to allow her to balance out colors and prints, so I am taking her up on that offer!
Sue’s question for May is: Where do you look for quilting inspiration? Share a favorite blog, book, magazine, instructor/class, etc.
Back in December I set 15 Quilty Resolutions for 2015, and I invited you to join me in making quilting resolutions for the year. I wanted to check int and report back on some of my progress so far this year.
Participating in the Stash Bee was one of the ways I wanted to be more interactive (#8) this year, and I have to admit that I look forward to the first of every month and getting to sew blocks for other people. It has been a wonderful experience so far!
I also just committed to attending a quilt retreat in November: Quilt Bliss. If you desire to be more interactive as well, there is still some availability on the retreat, and I would love to see you there! This will also help me work on another goal: cultivate friendships (#14)! 🙂
How are things going for you this year? Are you making the kind of progress you were hoping?
