My little squares no longer need me…they’re ready to leave the nest..and form their own home. Sigh…yes my little Patchwork Village is ready for it’s own quilt.
All of these blocks were stitched (lovingly) while we traveled. When ever we went anywhere I would grab my little blue tote filled with my stitchery blocks and off we would go…over bumpy roads…over smooth…high in the mountains…but mostly in the desert.
Here’s Rosalie’s quilt all done up in reds, pinks and white. I am planning on doing mine in greens, browns, golds and reds…hmmm sounds like fall! But it’s not…in fact, my inspiration came from Dawnie’s quilt!! I LOVE HER QUILT!! Go over to Dawnie’s blog and drool…(posted on Sept. 7th).
So now that my little stitcheries no longer need me…what am I going to do with myself…. Well, I guess I could co-pilot…”NOOOOOO” says my husband! Hmmm, I guess I’ve got to find another project…like this…
I love this quilt – it has little embroidered reindeer inside the stars..AND I can get the pattern FREE from the Fat Quarter Shop (and so can you!!).
Maybe this ‘little’ quilt..called Winter Wonderland by Crab-Apple Hill. I bought this pattern at the Road to California and it is gorgeous! There’s enough embroidery on this baby to keep me stitching well into the next decade!! ;o) Come to mama…
Whew, I’m no longer having stitchery withdrawals just thinking about my new projects!!
Do you ever feel withdrawals when you’ve finished a project that you loved doing? OR is it just me? :o0
So we are off to Temecula this morning. Friends have arrived and one of them is a quilter…so of course I mentioned the fantastic quilt shops in Temecula…. :o) TTFN
Have a magical Monday and Happy quilting!
