CELEBRATING Color and a Symphony....


A reward for a taxing day in the "office"....CELEBRATING with a fun post and a new book to inspire me for the quilting of the outside border of Lindsey's Triathlon....

and a new project soon...I get so excited wondering about a new one!

Have you drooled over Gloria Loughman's book, Quilted Symphony?

It is such a feast!!!!

Above photo is from the book on page 23 that talks of ability to override the temptation "to create what you see rather than what you feel....." and that the list of colorful inspirations is "infinite, but you must have your eyes and soul open to respond."



There is a fabulous Student Gallery towards the back of the book and of course I fell in love with this SURFACE ENERGY by Melinda Gibson.  Colors are so saturated and heat emanates...The quilting in this book is fabulous and going to be an excellent study for me as I begin the final leg of my quilt.



Hmmmmmmmm...what will Roxy quilt tonight? 

Thursday's Thought...

What is your soul open to today?

Love, Em

Today my soul is open. More so than it has been for a while. I am strong and happy. That's as good as it gets. I think that is the perfect book for you - eyes and sould open to respond.
