Today I sewed. It was such a release as I had been wanting to get on my machine all week. I find it relaxing. My husband and I are finally getting our groove on to allow us both to have a bit of creative time. Hubby used his time to harvest firewood, which means that yes a chainsaw can be a creative tool. When he got home I took some time to catch up on my log cabin quilt.
I love the process of the log cabin quilt. It is so rewarding and quick. Each strip increases the size of each block. Each complete block is an accomplishment. I need 49 accomplishments for the double quilt I am making.
My theme for this quilt is beauty in imperfection. I misread the instructions and went out of order on my colors. Once I let go I realized that I love the colors the way they are. It is kind of like doing an art project with a toddler. The process is what is important, let go of the outcome and it becomes beautiful.
I think the this would make a nice banner.
I chose a mix of traditional and modern patterns. I love the way they look together. The almonds on the left are because I knew that I did not want to stop for lunch. Creative time only happens once a week at best. Snack and sew.
