Thursday, July 28, 2011 an odd way

Inspiration comes in the strangest places...
So I cleared my girls room...and put away all of their books.
Looking at the titles and the stacks...I found myself wanting to make a book quilt.

I am thinking...a quilt with a border all the way around that has strips that I can sew the titles of books on...and make a little bookshelf as the border around my quilt. Something cute should be in the center. I am thinking I should try some applique in the middle...maybe characters from my daughters book.

Hmmm....Just an idea....

By the Way....the kids book "Big Red Apple" is completed illustrated by applique - it is a quilt that goes through the story. It is beautiful! SO cool!!

Crazy...but returning soon...

Hello Everyone!

I am sorry I have been insanely busy and I haven't had a chance to do much of anything for me.

Thank you, Nonnie, for reminding me, in your podcast, that people might be wondering where I went.

Summer school is cranking and I have a ton of work to do. I love it, but it means that I have no time to quilt. I actually had to hire a babysitter to watch my babies, even though I am at home, so that I could get all of my work done.

My hasn't happened at all. I am worried that I won't remember how to do anything when I finally get the time to dive in.

Thank you, everyone, for sticking with me! I will hopefully have a podcast for you by Monday!
Have a wonderful, exciting summer day!
