Do Your Quilts Talk to You?

It's been so long since I stopped in here.....I'm not sure where to start. The ease of Instagram has turned me into a lazy blogger.

A few weeks ago I just couldn't fine any Quilty Motivation. I sometimes find, that if I actually go and do something the motivation starts to creep back in.  Every once and in awhile it actually returns with a vengeance, exploding full of ideas. It was more of a slow go this time.




So...I started by cutting strips....and cutting more strips!!! I do have a tendency to carried away.

I have four favorite "go to sizes". They are 4.5", 2.5", 2" and 1.25". These are the sizes I use for joining blocks (narrow and wide joining strips). I also use the 2.5" for binding. Plus these sizes give me plenty of variety to play with.

I also threw in some fairly large prints from my stash, that for some reason I have been hesitant to use.

After a week or so of cutting strips.....I just started to play.






At some point it almost feels like the quilt starts talking to me. Let's hope I can hear what it's saying. Do your quilts talk to you???

  8. My quilts talk to me. Sometimes our conversations have wonderful results; other times it could be a struggle. It's best when they win!

  11. Oh yes - my quilts DO talk to me (before, during, and sometimes even after). IG is easy but not nearly as satisfying (harder to share stories there).

  12. Yes, I've missed your posts. IG is nice but not the same as this.

  13. They only time they talk to me are when they say, "What were you thinking?" ! Great job!

  14. Yay! You're back! I've missed your posts. Thank you for sharing your process. I like your choice of colors. They all work great together. Hmmm...I don't know if my quilts talk to me. Maybe they do when I know what feels goods to me with the choices I make.
