Have you ever had another quilter look at what you are working on and make the comment "that is just so not you." Wow, that could just mean so many things?If she thinks I am a good quilter does this mean this particular piece is not well done? On the other hand maybe she has hated all the quilts I've done and finds herself in the awkward position of liking my work this time? On the other hand (woops three hands?!) maybe I have already wasted enough brain-cells wondering about that comment and should just stitch-on!
Do you have a piece of fabric in your stash that "isn't you?" I have a really wide range of fabrics on my shelves. There are a lot that I love but rarely use (like my Kaffe fasset) and some that were for specific project that didn't happen (my robot fabric collection) but few that just aren't me...except maybe this Elvis fabric that I don't remember why I bought (though I am sure it was a really good buy and a really good reason!)
Today is a good fold fabric day...I am worried about my Mom who fell and broke her hip and is having surgery today. I was going to fly up to Boston to see her in the hospital but woke up this morning with a 103 degree fever and an ever-worsening cold/flu. I don't think they would even let me in the hospital parking lot - unless of course I pass out which doesn't seem that remote a possibility at the moment.... Also, in a moment of fevered lunacy I decided to square-up my Baltimore Album blocks - somebody please come and take the rotary cutter away from me until the fever breaks - one block is now 15x16....duhhhhhhhhh.
So I have been pulling scraps to make my sister Jane quilt. Can you believe she sent me photos of quilts she liked and they were all really basic scrappy quilts. Big sigh of relief here! So I am making piles of squares and rectangles and just randomly sewing them together...Elvis will make and appearance in this quilt as will some robots, William Morris, and civil war. This will be a fabric melting pot (sounds so much nicer than garbage bag quilt!) And it will be so me...
