Life is an adventure and quilting adds creative energy to that journey!

This has been a busy last week---lots of work, not a lot of sleep, some worry, but now it is a new week and I know things are on the up-swing. I wasn't able to sleep, so I did what most quilters do, I got up and made a couple of blocks. This quilt has been going around blog land. It is called the "Vomit Quilt". Not sure why----but it is a wonderful use of all those 2.5 inch squares I cut trying out my GO! cutter. One block requires 49 pieces! Hanging on my design wall is 196 squares! I decided to use up some solids I had as well so those are counted in the total. I am determined to use up what I have first rather than cut more, so I will have some repeats, but given the chaotic look of the quilt, you shouldn't be able to see the repeats that well. This will be a good size twin---perfect for a "cuddle up and watch TV" quilt. I think I will back it in flannel, to make it even more comfy.
Well, gotta go get ready for work. Next week is Fall Break and I can hardly wait!!!! Just wanted to check in and let you know I was still around! More later!
