Seasons of Change

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.

The road to Camp Mikell

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.
