red and white.

You know this already....
but let me remind you:

Quilting is JUST sewing and cutting....
sewing and cutting
sewing.....and.....

(Can see the small quilt
in the background there?
I'm trying to get it ready for hand quilting.
Quilting also requires a little bit of THAT) 
;)

The reason I like it so much....
Is because it results in such wonder!!!


You never know EXACTLY how it's going to look.
It's a SURPRISE.
A wonderful surprise!!!!

You COULD follow a pattern....
But then...
You'd miss ALL the FUN!!!!
:)

This is for a swap!!

Have you heard about the I spy swap
Lollyquiltz is organizing???
You have until May 31
to send her twenty 5" squares!!!!

The 20 squares I'll receive from Carla
will be a surprise too!!

There's WONDER at every turn
when You're quilting!!!

  6. the red and white is so pretty - more than the sum of its parts, for sure. And I agree that quilting is a fun surprise. It's like playing, I think.
