Handquilting

ohhh yeah baby!!! I love this week!!

it's filled with fun, wild, crazy living!!!

Are you living crazy like me???

Are you embracing life to the fullest that you can???

I choose to do just that…embrace all I can!!!

So to start this week, I grabbed these fat quarters that my sweet, sweet friend Julie sent me …

Mr Gorgeous had to put the gnome in there…he's sooo cute (mr gorgeous…okay, the gnome is, too!!)

This is my project quilting challenge #4 quilt submission, too!!! (it's a busy week, what can I say???)

The challenge was to create a block for a Barn Quilt. A Barn Quilt is usually a big quilt (around 8'x8') that depicts one block. I chose to do my own version of a wonky log cabin block. This is my first attempt at a wonky log cabin, but I have to tell you, I was completely enamored with the marriage of modern + traditional. This whole idea of a log cabin (which was my very first quilt block ever! yipeee!!) with straight line quilting (modern) and white space (modern) along with crazy awesome modern fabrics (Dan Bennett's Cosmos from Free Spirit) with the added traditional folk hand quilting (middle block) just made me smile through the whole process. LOVE that!

This is why I quilt…to create something that makes me smile so that in turn it will inspire someone else to create or believe or have hope or just be inspired!! 🙂 This quilt definitely inspired me to continue to create in a modern marrying traditional manner. (like that alliteration??? okay, it's been a long week so far!! LOL!!)

Thanks again, Julie and Kim for the inspiration to create!! 🙂
