I've been picking away at Cynthia's Scrap-a-Palooza quilt #16 and so far have made 24 blocks, just when I feel the urge to piece something.
|I love her circle layout. I haven't played with other layout possibilities but they're going on my design wall in the circle pattern for now.|
I'm also picking away at Scrap Vortex. It's going to be a very slow-growing quilt. I'm okay with that. Mindless, grab a few small scraps that I keep tossing in one of my Nesting Bowls and put 'em together. Ahh. Massage for the creative part of my soul.
Part of my soul...my pitbull, pibble, Rocco, who decided to take advantage of my footrest since I wasn't yet out there using it:
The sunshine has been calling, so I make sure I get a 20-minute or so dose of vitamin D apart from Rocco and my daily walk.
|Lake Erie was pristine this morning. I could have sat on that new stone bench for some time|
|Could not resist this Chevy coupe from Rocco's (!!) Speed Shop|
|My colour too!|
All right! Hope you found a common thread in this post, and I hope you check out those new blogs for more great inspiration and like-minded creative souls. I've now made my final decision (I think, ha ha) on the binding for this quilt, so I'm off to the basement, out of my chair on the patio (Rocco's out of my footrest) to finish up this quilt so I can take it to our Erie Shores Guild meeting tonight! I will be linking this post up with Oh Scrap! at Quilting is More Fun Than Housework. :-)
