I've been feeling the beginnings of a growth spurt coming on for a while now. I'm not sure why now, or how it will come, all I know is I can feel it coming. Maybe it's because I've finished some long overdue projects and my "must do" list is getting very small and that in turn is leading to inspiration instead of a weight on my shoulders.
These blocks are currently on my wall in my sewing room. I'm a part of The Traveling Quilts, and this is what I've made so far for it. The traveling quilts was put together by Heather and John, and there are 11 of us total. The way it works is we all start our own quilt, however we like, with whatever kind of blocks we like. We then in turn mail the start to the next person on the list who will add to it. Then they mail it to the next person on the list and so on. So each month, we will each be adding some to one of the other member's quilts. During the last month, not only will we add to the last quilt we receive, but we will quilt, back, and bind it and then return it to the original person who started the quilt, so in the end, we all end up with a finished quilt.
None of us know how our quilts will end up and we are forbidden from posting more than sneak peeks as we sew on everyone's quilts. But that's the beauty of it all. In the end, we'll all have a surprise of a lovely quilt sewn by friends. I can hardly wait!
One more thing, there are only a couple spots left for the weekend paper piecing workshop I'm doing, so if you're planning on coming, make sure and reserve your spot now!
