Do you get that feeling when you are full of quilt ideas and you just get quilt happy? I’m on that high right now and it is great!
I joined the Name Game swap hosted by Samelia’s Mum. Yesterday after getting half of the quilt I had planed finished I decided it wasn’t coming out as I wanted it to and I decided it was time to start over. I left the sewing room quite frustrated and disappointed. Less that half an hour later I had an epiphany! I hurried into town and bought some fat quarters and came home and had this made with in a couple of hours. It’s happy and bright even with the gray in the background and I love it! The blank space in the center is left for my swap partner’s name but that is a secret. Shhhhh! Don’t tell. Now I’m working on some embroidery and light beading in the hearts. This is a quilt I’m excited about.
Another reason I’m filled with quilt happiness is that I joined a new group on facebook. One of my favorite blogs to follow is It’s Sew Kiki. If you haven’t seen it I would recommend that you visit. Well Kiera who writes the blog started a new group on facebook called Sew What! It is a great group filled with inspiration, extremely positive feedback and encouragement and great quilters. If you love sewing of any kind you should check it out.
Now I need to be getting back to my hearts! (Excitement!)
