Don't you just love the smell of fabric fibers coming off the metal in your rotary blade? No?? Must just be me. I believe that quilting is more of a personality for me. Like having a second me doing all this fun creative crazy stuff and then the real me looks at it and says "where did that come from" With the movement of modern quilting taking such a big part of my new found love for piecing those little tiny scraps of fabric.
I find now, that the things I used to think of as tedious are now my favorite parts of the quilting process. Even after quilting for 15 years, I find something new that I love about quilting every time I start one.
I spent some time squaring up my blocks for the Fat Quarterly Quilt along (I am already way behind). I love those solid Kona colors in such a simple, yet modern pattern. Those crisp edges get me every time.
They are so beautiful aren't they.......
Do you see how much of a difference it makes on my design board from pieces to pieced!
And unfortunately my fabric organization project has floated by the wayside.... but here is a progress shot.
I can't wait until I finish this job to see how much room I have left to buy more fabric :)
