This week's doings

On Wednesday my quilt guild featured speaker was Raynola Pakusich. Very interesting lady. She is particularly knowledgeable about various ethnic fabrics, how they are made and how they can be used -sometimes together (regardless of country of origin). So she might pair up Asian fabrics with African fabrics and they look fabulous together. My photos were all too dark. I have asked another quilter for permission to use her photos - I will post them if she gives me the 'go ahead'. Meanwhile, this is the quilt that the guild will raffle off during our annual quilt show. Wouldn't it just be terrific if my number is drawn?









You probably know what I'm still working on at home. Log cabin strips. I think the pattern calls for 2 more light rounds and 2 dark. One of these days. . . . . . .











On January 4, Paula posed the question, 'What is the discipline of quilting?'. I have been thinking about that over these past 10 days, and I would have to answer that for me the discipline of quilting is sticking with it and finishing up what I have started - Particularly if something is not turning out quite like I had envisioned it ahead of time. So how about for you?

No discipline for me. For me quilting should be fun, we have so much things we must do at work, at home. So I try just to quilt the way I like, with all my projects (UFO's) and fabrics. Just enjoying quilting. bye bye Caro

Well, Marne, that's a hard question. I, too, have trouble sticking with something that is giving me trouble. I've pushed through quite a few quilts lately that I wanted to put down and give up on. I'm glad I stuck with it.

For me though, I think giving one of my quilts away is the tough one. I'm always glad when I give away my quilts to people who will love them. They (the quilts) are like my children...really hard to let go.

I am disciplined in keeping track of what I've finished and what I am working on. I've kept a journal from day one. Now, my goal is to label everyone!
