It's the end of spring break. It was early this year so spring wasn't in full form. This is the view outside my sewing room window. I LOVE my azaleas. They are just starting to pop. I absolutely love sitting in this spot to sew.
I have a new book that is motivating me. Kathy Doughty's Adding Layers. I first saw it on the Exuberant Color blog.
I fell in love with this block. It is similar to a block she has in her Making Quilts book but this one is squared off. No sewing curves! This appeals to me. It is basically a dresden plate. I love sewing dresdens. They are quick and rewarding.
I'm trying to choose fabric combinations that are wildly outside my comfort zone. I tried but not sure they will be wildly outside what I normally choose. Maybe a little bit.
I want to end up with a quilt for my king sized bed. It will have to have a lot of blue to look good in the room. Here's my first block.
Today I am grateful for my husband who made me the wedge I needed. He made it from MDF which is a great template. I'm so spoiled and grateful for that.
Saw this on a blog and thought it would be good for me to live by.
