Grab a cup of coffee because I have so many quilt CELEBRATIONS to share with you! Have fun with this eye candy!!
I hope you enjoyed the above quilts from an exhibit at the Bellevue Art Museum CELEBRATING African American quilts from as early as the 1920's. Do you see influences that remind you of Tonya's current LOVE quilt without sashings, Gwen Marston medallion quilts, Victoria's "made fabric"? As I loved these quilts with mom, I was mindful of Sujata and Nifty's styles and how much I enjoy their talents. Ironically, mom and I found this exhibit during our quest to find Nifty's exhibit. I thought it was at the Northwest Quiltshop in Bellevue but later found out it was a different Northwest. Try again today!
With all of the energy of children and adults playing with scraps, loving the quilts at BAM, I was inspired to stick to my love and make a wonky baby quilt in place of the conventional brick pattern. The baby has parents that are so HIPPIE and so I played with themes that would play to their heart while celebrating the new bundle coming in November. Now to quilt!
And do you notice the pinks and yellows mom brought with her? Keeping you curious of what her project is whlie here with me. Started a block last night and it is yummy....keep you posted!
Happy Sunday and thank you for joining me today! Em
PS....Sharon has opened a store at her blog, http://fabricsandflowers.blogspot.com. She has one pattern and is currently working on a second soon to be unvelied. Hop over and say hi!

A very special couple is expecting their first child and I have been playing with ideas for their baby quilt.....They are having the gender be a surprise and so I have come up with this play time trying out ideas. Oh Deer by Momo is my choice of fabric to CELEBRATE their love for the outdoors and my memories of us all playing in the Utah wilderness together.

What daily doing is your meditation....What is your Clinique favorite....and I am not talking Nordy's sale item
When life becomes busy, a little off kilter or a morning when you think, "Can I start this over?"......What is a routine you do each day that can become a moment of peace while you focus on each step and nothing else.......
