There's just something about hand quilting. It speaks to slowing down and enjoying the process. In this world of rush and hurry and get MORE done, it's quite the opposite. Take your time and enjoy the process. I certainly am.
It's interesting how we change over the years. When I was in my early years of quilting I hated hand applique and also hand quilting! And now I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them both. Maybe it says something about where I am in my life. Life is about the journey! And I'm loving the trip!
The tulips in our front yard are really gorgeous, aren't they? It's so nice to see some Spring color coming in.
Yesterday we parked at the condo and walked across campus (diagonally, no less!) to go to the baseball game. We could park closer, but we're trying to walk more. Hubby and both got our 10,000 steps in yesterday! Anyway, I spotted this beautiful, shiny foliage on our walk. I love the red veins.
Some of the stems are red, too. Lovely!
I spotted this cool pattern, too. May have to design a quilt with this - crosses and circles together. Very interesting! I have a LOOOONG list for today - better get going! Happy Monday!
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
