I really like the soft floral fabric that is the focus fabric for these quilt blocks. It’s one of those pieces of fabric that I purchased because I really loved it…but it took me years to find the right pattern and the right accompanying fabrics to motivate me to cut into it. I think it pairs well with the pink and lavender borders and the aqua and yellow star points.
I’ve been working on a new quilt! This one is BRIGHT! But bright is okay! I LIKE bright. I think there’s a little girl out there in the world somewhere that will like bright too. This will be a donation quilt though I’m not sure where I will ultimately donate it.
Now that I’ve given away most of the gifts I have for this year I am feeling at once a sense of calm and peace, but also an eagerness to dive into next year. I think one of the things we will be doing more of this year are the family gatherings with a crafting focus. It’s fun to see the younger generation picking up that tradition and it’s fun for the older generation to pick it up again too. Crafting makes a nice focus to form a gathering around.
