Happy Saturday happy quilters! This week has been super busy. Our garden keeps me busy preserving the harvest but in between bushels of vegetables the fabric is flying and the sewing machine humming. For most quilters this time of year means stitching up fall quilts. I'm not a big fan of fall colored quilts so I'm jumping ahead and working on a Christmas quilt. For our family Christmas is all about family time and the simple things in life. While working on my current project I'm trying to stay focused on just that..simple. And it occurred to me that there are some really simple things in quilting that give me great pleasure. Like the tiny 4 patch that is made when you spin the seams on the back of a block to make them flatten. The little four patch inspired me to stop and enjoy the moment of tiny little things I love.
Pulling fabric is another Joy. Seeing others quilters fabric selections also makes my little ole heart go pitter-pat. The love affair with fabric is pretty close to an obsessive disorder. But I don't have to tell you that, you all understand!
Well this new quilt has me so over the moon excited that I've decided to make it in two different color ways. One for me and one as a gift. The hard part will be deciding which one to give away.
So I gotta know, is there a quilting joy that makes you pause? That one simple thing that always makes you smile? Does it take your breathe away or is it a calming sigh? I know there's more than a few kindred spirits out there.
Thanks for stopping by my little spot in Podunk
