a blog about the author's fascination with all fiber arts such as quilting, sewing and knitting...

Yes, I am still alive. It has been a bustling summer with a continuous stream of nephews, godsons and other male strays visiting- boys, boys and more boys. In spite of my best lectures on gender stereotypes and trying new creative ventures, not a single one would sew with me:) The machine has been idle. We've been having fun outdoors 24/7.
Am behind on a few projects but still decided to join Barb's Broken Dishes Swap. Really enjoyed participating in the last one and I think there are still spaces in the Modern swap sewn with solids. It's a versatile block and it is always fun to see the different ways everyone puts theirs together. Email to join!
Inspiration comes from this 1930's quilt made of almost 3,000 half square triangles and mainly feedsack fabrics. Absolutely LOVE the orange border...
Hope everyone is similarly busy and having a good time!
