When you saw the below block for the first time whether on blogger or opening this post, What did you think of or your eye look to first? I am always curious what others SEE when they first see a quilt or is it even the quilt that is seen first...do the eyes or sun rays jog a memory that you were not expecting or...
"I have wanted to do that pattern and now this is the perfect inspiration to grab some scraps and cut cut cut!"
So fun, as I posted these blocks from my mom, Similar fun from Piece o' Cake designers pieced by Colleen is posted on the http://fmqcelebration.blogspot.com/. Visit the post and CELEBRATE her color and fun!
What came to my mind was two-fold.... I gasped when I opend the text on my phone and then thought, "MOM, you are amazing and so fun at the same time!" and simply responded, "OMG-Oh my goodness!"
The pattern is by John Flynn and Mom bought the pattern and gadget at Paducah and says that it works perfectly!
My second thought was envisioning a small kid talking to his friend, "It is like my mom has eyes in the back of her head...." I love the phrase and this use of novelty fabrics tells me that story....
LOVE LOVE LOVE.....gets the wheels turning and keeps them lubed! and as I type I think.....if the tire goes flat..even more love and compassion goes into the process of getting back on the road.
So as you go through your Thursday, May you find yourself travelling with love at the wheel, humming the ditty, "The wheels on the bus go round and round......" and if you have a crying babe just do the wah wah wah motions...there might be a smile that breaks the tears for a moment!
CELEBRATING YOU MOM!!! and our M and M time together!!!
(e"M" and "M"om)
