I Can't Think of a Title!


I have so many things to blog about.  Two finished quilts, at least two more in progress, some linky love for other blogs, a couple book reviews, and some favorite fabrics.  I even have the photos, which can be the challenge some days.  This time my problem is that every time I sit down here, I don't have any words.

I'm not sure if there's too many thoughts in my head and I can't get them out, or if my brain is empy!  I wish my mom could read my thoughts and write it down for me.  OK, let's amend that:  I wish my mom could read the part of my mind that thinks about quilts and bloggy stuff ;)  cause she's a great writer and knows how to translate the thoughts to words.


I think part of my problem is that I don't want to be as dry as sawdust here, and sometimes describing a quilt does feel a bit dry and flaky.  I was into it and enjoying it while I was making it.  Now it's completed, and I'm onto the next project.  I still really like it, but I SO don't feel the excitement anymore.  I guess I have some serious crafting ADD!

  17. Jolene, that first photo is absolutely stunning! The contrast of the quilt and the chair, the way the light hits it - awesome! Oh, and by the way, it's a really nice quilt! I always enjoy reading your posts - don't worry so much about sounding dry! I think most of the time a quilt speaks for itself, and if people want specifics, they can ask and you can reply in e-mail. Some people just post vital statistics for a quilt - pattern name/designer, size, fabrics used, start and finish dates. That's one way to deal with the quilt info so you can get on to other things! Anyway, thanks for sharing!

  19. I second Johanna! You can always just share the pics and say very little. We'll get it. (and we all know what you mean about getting "over" a project).

  20. I was thinking about this quilt - I saw a color that I call cheddar, and then I saw an aqua blue - so my mind said "Bleu Cheese"!!!!! It's beautiful - and beautifully quilted, too! Thanks for sharing it!

  25. I love this quilt. The perfect combination of traditional patterns with modern fabrics. I think that's my favorite thing about your blog (p.s. I just discovered you, so I'm about a year and a half behind the curve. :-)

  26. I like the colour combination of this quilt, I like combining stars with squares to show the fabric. I think I wouldn't have bought the fabric, but here I like it. I understand your feelings but I think you've got a pretty quilt.
