I've been reading Camille Roskelley's book, Simplify and among the gorgeous fabric and the inspiring quilts there is a quote that has really stuck with me. She says in the dedication, "I would also like to dedicate this to every other mom out there who wants to make something that just stays done."
Amongst the laundry, the dishes, the cooking and the cleaning... my blocks are done and thankfully they will stay done.
They're part of a challenge for the Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild. We shared fat quarters from Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow. Then we had to make any kind of square block using the fat quarters and stash fabric. I got the center fabric and the navy herringbone. I picked blues and greens from my stash that would go with the other Modern Meadow fabrics. Speaking of Joel Dewberry... did you see that Aviary 2 is starting to arrive in stores? Hooray! It is at the top of my wishlist.
Are you working on something that stays done this week?
