I love the quilting online community...between blogging, Pinterest and Instagram we can pretty much find anything...and talk about inspiration!
I remember when I first stumbled onto the Pie Lady Quilts Blog...and saw the Winter Tree Quilt! I HAD to make it! I dropped EVERYTHING...my 'Goals' went out the window! What Goals? :o))
Well ...when Robyn (a blogging friend) saw my Winter Tree quilt, she got the same rush and HAD to make it! It's funny when you are so inspired that you drop EVERYTHING and start cutting! Well, like dominoes we fell...and fell hard! (I like to called it 'Being Possessed'...the devil made me do it!)
Don't you love the trees...and I love the way Robyn put in a few fir trees...a PERFECT addition! I always marvel at the way we quilters always put our spin on a design and make it our own!
So Robyn and I would like to shout out a HUGE thank you to the Pie Lady for starting the chain of dominoes...one block at a time! Actually, truth be told, Pinkadot Quilts started the fall...it was her tutorial that got us all started! Sometimes there are so many dominoes that it's hard to figure out which one was the first to fall!
Just in case Robyn inspired YOU to pick up that next domino, you can find Pinkadot Quilting Blog's tutorial HERE! You can see the Pie Lady Quilt's Winter Trees HERE and HERE is my version. Oh and you can see Glynis' Winter Trees HERE...and Claire's Winter Trees are still in motion! (Stay tuned!) Yup...like I said, we all fell and fell hard! You have got to LOVE the internet!
What about YOU? Have you ever been so inspired that you have dropped everything and jumped on to the quilt-wagon? Come on we KNOW that it's happened to you! What quilt/pattern inspired you to drop everything and get cutting? And aren't you glad that you did?
Thanks for sharing, Robyn! You gave us just the eye candy that we needed this morning! Have a sunny Sunday and Happy Stitching~P
PS...It looks like Helen Howes was the first domino.... being the designer who thought up this pattern! The dominoes who followed you thank YOU very much, Helen!! You are brilliant!
Recouping and Cross Stitch - I spent the weekend with my foot up. I am so bad at sitting, but I did it. Ruby was super happy to hang out with me. One of the best things for me to do ...
