My first Baltimore Album quilt!....Just kidding, but isn't it beautiful!....I so wanted to be traditional last night, but......

I so badly wanted to be a traditional quilter last night....Look how beautiful my aunt's album quilt is in the photo below. Years and years of needle turning applique at my home when she was visiting. Or the classic Christmas ornaments from my younger brother's elementary years....I too wanted to try on the tradition of classic....I had good intentions but then the little devil on my shoulder said, "Em......


stay true to your heart!" Sally, if you are reading this, you will smile from our email on Sunday. You are that little devil that was my inspiration for this Victoria-made fabric spinner of deLIGHT!




So much fun! Watching Pawn Stars with Noah and sewing tiny bits of fabric together Victoria-style! Thinking that I will sash with boinging purple and use a bright yellow Kaffe for the starts imbetween each wheel but....you never know do you?

Looks good! I love the mash of scraps all together.

You mean--me? Why, thank you. But I can't believe I'm responsible for your inspiration. Usually it's just the opposite--you inspire me. Anyway, another great piece.

Loved your sharing of the traditional, so glad that you are an original. You continue to inspire and I do not mean just quilting. xxx000

Now if that's not liberating a block I don't know what is. Wonderful!
