As you can imagine the past 6 months have been over the top, a sort of sensory overload. Though I think of myself as an innovative traditionalist - deep in inside is a lurking art quilter. Which probably explains my love of just about all quilts! This past spring I finally bit the bullet and purchased some Cherry Wood Fabrics (www.cherrywoodfabrics.com). Every show, my mouth would water when passing by their booth, but I just never opened up my pocket book (in fact I usually don't purchase at big shows as I am usually working in a booth) The amount of $$ I spent in 10 minutes was staggering - LOL! Ordinarily, these colors would not be my first pick I am not saying I don't like them, because I love them, just not my first choice. Something called them to me, and thank goodness I listened. After a retreat, co-teaching with Jean Wells in Sister's OR(www.stitchinpost.com), I came home and this quilt took life. I will machine quilt it and plan to take my time. By the way, the circles are pieced in (thank you to Dale Flemming for her technique). So whacha think - Does it look like me?
