I love long, winding roads. I don’t know if the anticipation of what’s coming next and finding out what the future holds or if, like in this photo, I can enjoy complete aloneness. I can be one with my thoughts that, perhaps, include what IS around the corner? Or just marvel in the beauty of this space. Clean air. Quiet. Nature. Space.
A few weeks ago, I went on a much needed getaway. I spent the weekend with 6 other quilters in a quiet retreat space in North Georgia. It was exactly what I needed. I was able to finish quite a few WIP’s and spend time focusing solely on myself. Three days of being selfish. It was glorious.
I finished another version of my All Squared Up quilt.
When I made my Aether Quilt, I specifically cut the squares from yardage a specific way so I would have enough fabric to make a version of this quilt using the leftover pieces. I’m absolutely in love with how this quilt turned out and cannot wait to get it back from my friend, Regina.
I finally finished this Little Lone Star quilt. I started it for a zoom class and, since I teach in stages, I had sections here and there, creating a lot of small, sort of pieced parts. I love how this turned out! Sweet. A little masculine. Definitely cozy.
This is one of my best selling patterns. It’s fast and easy to assemble and perfect for a jelly roll! For this version, I used a jelly roll plus a few other strips from fabrics in my stash to round out the look I wanted. The green squares and triangles are from a Kona cotton, but I’ve also made this quilt with Essex linen.
I continue to work through the book The Artist’s Way. I’m loving the process and how I’m changing. There is so much to share about it (and I wrote some about the process in my previous blog post) but this has been so freeing and exhilarating. If you have the desire, I highly recommend the book to all creatives.
Happy celebration of seasons, and self, changing.
