The La Traveling Quilt Bee is getting under way. In fact, I've made my first block and will send it off in a day or two. I am not sure that it's what I want, but I am working on a customer quilt that has a deadline, so my block will have to wait.
There are things that I like--the color, the size, the fabrics--and things that I'm not so sure about. I think I'll just send it off and hope for the best. My idea it there, but it's not what I envisioned. Of course, I'd have to either start over or do lots of ripping. Neither sound very appealing, but I don't have to make my decision right now.
I do like this particular fabric. It is an off white background with calligraphy words. Some are readable, but not many. Some are French: I can figure out famille (family) and a couple of other words. However, there may be some words that are not French or English. They are so difficult to read that I just don't know, but that adds to the appeal.
This little applique reads "make a quilt for each of my children." Now that I really love. The light blue is almost gray and I've decided to request grays and neutrals.
If you're interested in following some of our antics, there are a few ways that you can keep up. One is to see what we pin to the Pinterest board that's been set up especially for this purpose. I'll add a few more links later, when I figure out how to access them. lol It seems I'm going to have to learn a few more computer skills, especially how to use hashtags.
