Evidence of productivity
I was going to title this post "Evidence that I'm on fire" cause that is what I alluded to in my last post. That I'm on fire. Creatively speaking. Not actually on fire. Anyway. Apparently the cold winter months turn my introverted, homebody self into a quilting machine. When I look back at the archives of past years I see the clear trend. I make lots of quilts in the winter. Especially immediately before and after the holidays.
I started these blocks in October and got them finished, assembled, basted, quilted and bound over Christmas. It's a limited color palette that at first I loved, then I hated, and now I love again. You do that too, right? The love-hate-love thing during the making process?
This quilt is made up of 56 blocks -- 21 of which were made by members of an online quilting bee I'm part of called Stash Sewciety. I backed this one in a heavy brushed twill making this quilt weighty and perfect for winter. I have a serious crush on it's scrappiness.
After two quilts featuring a plus sign so prominently in the design, you'd think I was ready to move on. Ha. I'm making a third right now!
Fire I tell ya! Fire!
Just don't call me Beavis or Butthead.
