Quilt Marathon Recap

I didn't do too badly! Three out of four got quilted. And the fourth one, it's just as well (but that's a story for another day!)

I warmed up with this one....

While cleaning up one day, I found these giant (like 15" square) pinwheels, and the stripes, all leftovers from a charity quilt I did for South East Early Head Start. With the addition of the dark purple, it was enough for another charity quilt.


Next was my plus quilt.


I really like how this came out. The pops of red make me smile. Although I've been practicing leaves and vines with my free motion quilting, I chickened out and did an all over meaner. I'll save the leaves for another day.

Lastly, I finished my drunkards path made entirely of men's shirting. I love, love, love this one! The pieces were die cut on an accucut machine and went together beautifully! I really need to dive into my box of shirting again. It looks so fresh and crisp.

tickle, tickle!

String Progress:


So, that looks like 26 strings. I'm a little behind. 5 today to keep on track. You know what, it's growing on me! I think I like it!

nks for sharing the article, and more importantly, your personal experience mindfully using our emotions as data about our inner state and knowing when it’s better to de-escalate by taking a time out are great tools. Appreciate you reading and sharing your story since I can certainly relate and I think others can to
