But before I tell you about them, I'm going to force you to see a photo of Pokey (even though you hate it when I do that):
That's my friend Kathy's Featherweight Pokey is peering through. Kathy has been coming over to sew a couple of times a week and it's really helped me to concentrate on sewing (rather than getting distracted by just about anything else). Kathy has been working on Bonnie's current mystery Roll Roll Cotton Boll (which is absolutely gorgeous). I had fun playing with the blocks and trying alternate ways to put them together. Look at how wonderful this is with sashing:
Did anyone else hear the This I Believe essay by Priya Chandrasekaran about using her deceased grandmother's saris in a quilt? It was on Bob Edwards Weekend on December 30th. You can find it on iTunes and on the show's website.
Fun article by Oliver Willms describing growing up with an increasingly obsessed quilter. It rings so true. The comments are interesting as well and note that the article was written with love and fondness - he's not being snarky.
Ooh, V has great post with photos showing you how she just starts without knowing where a quilt is going and following her intuition. Fabulous.
Sarah (House of Krom) shows step-by-step how to free-piece a mondo bird. It's a very cute bird and a well written tutorial.
I loved Barbara Brackman's article More Things That Can Go Wrong with some wild quilts. I think the last one is my favorite. Oh and this one too: Out of Control. I personally think all these are How Things Can Go Wild and Fun.
You can now pre-order Word Play Quilts and Bonnie Hunter's Scraps and Shirttails II (woohoo) over at Quiltville.
that's it for this post. See ya later.
