I spent tons of time thinking about the "word challenge". I had a whole bunch of words jotted on my white board, some of which appeared here:
Although I do need to do all of the above, I really was not inspired to make a quilt with any of them. Then I finished a small gift for a friend "just because" in the middle of another project that I'm racing to get done. When I gave it to her, I realized that I sew to be creative and play. So whatever I do or don't do, however messy it gets and whatever I finish or not is perfectly
Its not a big giant OK finishing at 12"x12"
The scraps are mine and from sewing friends. I bought the two different yellow ginghams in Germany when visiting my daughter in Berlin. I love gingham! On my first night there we went out for chinese food and my fortune cookie held the message: "The color yellow will bring you luck."
I really like the back. I got this fabric from a decorator sample book, so its a heavier cotton with a little sheen. My little quilt is labeled and signed and will hang above my sewing machine.
