I'm totally bushed after a wonderful weekend in Columbia, SC with the Greater Columbia Quilter's Guild. What a wonderful bunch of ladies!
So while I go throw myself in bed for hopefully a very long and restful sleep, please enjoy this awesome tribute to quilting video created by Gayle Thomas in 1996 and produced by the National Film Board of Canada:
Connie M sent me this last week and I've gotta say, quilting and Celtic music is the best combination in the world!
My favorite part was the Drunkards path. Which was yours?
I really love seeing all the blocks and how each builds and grows into the next. Patchwork is really what drew me to quilting in the beginning because it is such an open, limitless field to play in because we have literally hundreds, if not thousands, of possible quilt blocks created from simple combinations of squares, triangles, rectangles, hexagons, diamonds, and quarter circles.
I don't know about you, but this video is making me want to pull out my scraps, cut some simple shapes and piece, piece, piece some pretty colors together!
But for me that's going to have to happen tomorrow cause my eyes just aren't staying open a moment longer.
Let's go sleep!
