Week of Inspiration

Everywhere I looked this week, something was inspiring.

I've had "traditional quilts" on my mind lately as recently I became Chairperson, for my Quilt Guild's upcoming show next year. So, I'm knee deep in figuring out what quilt(s) I need to complete myself...and working on Patreon and Class projects too.

School begins in less than 2 that is on my mind (Your's too if you have children or grand-children) it just seems like a really busy time.

But, while at the chiropractor's office this week...I noticed the new floor rug. I"m thinking that this could be inspiration for a new medallion quilt pattern. Plus, I'm really liking the light blue and browns together as a color grouping!

Pulled some solids thinking of combining these with the silk tie fabrics for a crazy quilt for the show...but it is about 5th on my list of things to get had to pack these back away until at least one of the current on-going applique quilts is closer to finishing.

Lastly, the Vintage Re-production CQ Class is well underway...most have completed their first project and this weekend we begin to think about out "next" project. It got me to thinking about vintage embroidery designs...and worked up a French Rose for the Patreon group.

Now, I have to totally change gears and get ready to depart for South Alabama...on Tuesday. My friend Mary Young and I have a plan to use some of her dear Mom's garments in a I need to go pick these things up. Then, my bestee Sharron Grafton is hosting me for a Silk Ribbon Embroidery Class at her long-arm shop in Newton, AL on the 3rd of August...Saturday. I'm so looking forward to the trip...even if I am hauling my laptop, printer, sewing machine...and STUFF with me. A full car load a usual...but still it will be fun!

Hope this post finds each of you enjoying the end of your summer days as school begins soon!
