My written licence is still good for 6 months, so the option is still there to continue if I wish. But for now I am just going to enjoy the time with my family and make quilts! Yay!!!
So today I have dug up some old photos to show you. These are blocks made for a row by row quilt I did about 5 years ago with an Australian and NZ based internet group. These blocks have been around the world and back! I made the ones in the first photo - I used a pattern my Mother-in-law, Carmen, had drawn, using a real leaf from the park next to where her quilt group meets! My instructions to the group were to make them in unusual colors, "different" combinations, and to use fabrics they didn't think would go together! The title and theme for my rows was to be "Not Your Typical Autumn Leaves". I think the ladies did a great job and I love what I received. I am now thinking, (5 years later) especially with fall here, that it might be time to do something with them all.
And now my question to you all is, what shall I do with them?!! What would YOU do? A quilt? A big one? Break them up and use my very fav ones in a wallhanging? Pillows? Any suggestions gladly welcomed!!
