A little radio silence over here, I know! My 'free' time has been filled lately with finishing up this number, learning new tricks with my machines, working on a top secret project that I can't wait to share with you (!!), and planning out a king-size quilt commission! Plus, just living and enjoying the days with the kid, the man, and the furry herd.
This was a bit of an emotional quilt for me to work on. That may not make sense to some but often, creating is a very emotional process. You see, for whatever reason, I inherited much of Tex's fabric that wouldn't be sell-able. I've sat staring at those fabrics for a while, wanting to make sure I did them justice and made Tex proud with what I used them for. I don't know that I'll ever use up all that I was passed along but I am going to do my best to use every single little scrap! To say it's an honor to work with Tex's fabric would be an understatement.
So what started out as an intimidating and emotional project for me became one of my favorites. Sure, it's not perfect but I certainly learned tons from it, as I usually do. I'd like to think Tex would approve, and that Nancy will too. To both of you ladies for your creative encouragement and for sharing your unbelievable work with the world. You inspire more than you know.
For those interested, this quilt is now available in the shop.
