A Little Quilt for Me

Swiss cheese anyone? I've been goofing around with turning edges this week and working on a small art quilt wall hanging. Yes, the holes will go all the way through the quilt once it's finished!

Playing with artistic techniques like this is a real treat. I find when I don't push my edge and try new things, I start feeling really bored quilting the same thing over and over. Lately I've been quilting a lot of large scale quilts and the blocks for the Machine Quilting Block Party. While I love all of this work, I need to occasionally quilt something drastically different just for myself:

I'll be sharing more about this quilt, and I may turn it into a workshop as well, but for now it's a delightful creative escape just for me to enjoy. Make sure to quilt something for yourself today, just for the fun of it, just because you can!

Let's go quilt,

Leah Day
