The end of summer . . . I used to think that by the time my kids were done with school the end of summer wouldn't be so full of angst. You know the feeling. How can it be over already? What about all those summer plans? Even with grown kids I still feel the same way. How can it be over? I had lots of plans and ideas and didn't get half of them done. All the more reason to refocus and get busy.
Entry deadlines are coming up for QuiltCon and since I'm actually going this time I thought it would be fun to enter a couple of quilts. Now to get them done. The main problem is making up my mind which ideas to pursue. Never a shortage of ideas in my studio. : ) Just an inability to narrow down the choices and get started. Here's a glimpse of the fabrics I've pulled and played with this week.
I did cut and sew several HSTs for an idea I've had for ages. It's so nice seeing it begin to take shape for real. This is just a peek.
I guess it's rather obvious I love cool colors. What are you playing with this week?
Such pretty fabrics, Anne! I'm still trying to decide if I want to enter a quilt....ReplyDelete
Gosh, I'm just jealous that you have so many ideas you have NARROW them down! How DO you do that?! Come up with lots, I mean. I'm struggling terribly to try to come up with one ida. I love seeing the fabrics you pull and put together. You are truly gifted, Anne, and simply must not take that talent for granted. Lots of us wish we had a sniff of what you're oozing with!ReplyDelete
Beautiful fabrics. The stripes are my favorite! I was playing with cool colors this week, too. Next week, I move back to orange.ReplyDelete
They are all fabulous ideas well worth pursuing. I think the important thing can be to stop creating mentally and start creating physically so that dreams become a reality <3ReplyDelete
I have the same problem as you do.....I can't seem to narrow it down, too many ideas running around in my head. Such lovely fabrics though!! I'm glad to hear you are going to Quilt Con....I hope we get a chance to meet up!!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful fabric pull. I think I recognize thevprintvin the first pic as an Art Gallery?ReplyDelete
I love the first set of fabrics you've pulled. If you don't end up using them, just send them my direction! Good luck figuring out your game plan for Quilt Con.ReplyDelete
Your choice of colours is amazing Anne! And I too are jealous of the ideas you have to discard- could I have them please?!!!ReplyDelete
I love all of your fabrics, Anne. Whatever you decide, I know that it will be stunning!ReplyDelete
Everytime I visit your blog, I know I can count on those luscious greens and blues making an appearance--yum! Good for you for starting early. I'm still trying to finish up a few UFOs and organize my brain for fall sewing (the yard re-do keeps interrupting me!). Loved the tour through your "fabric pulls" today.ReplyDelete
