I am changing this acronym to Keep it Simple, Sewer. I have been driving myself crazy for a long time now. I am scared to say how long. At some point, alright a year ago I saw Amanda Jean's Christmas charm quilt and fell in love with it. I loved the look of the simple square quilt. I ended up buying myself 5 charm packs of Fresh by Deb Strain. I love tulips and all the fabrics are so bright and cheerful. The intention was to make myself a charm square quilt. I think there is a saying for intentions too, isn't there! ;-)
Well instead of making the quilt, I ended up playing around with them. Somehow I gave myself the impression that squares were too simple, that I needed to stretch my wings. I played around with all different ideas and concepts. I thought about pinwheels and so many other possibilities. I even thought of new ones when I attended a quilt show last weekend.
Finally yesterday I decided that it was time to go back to my 1st decision and make the charm square quilt. After I made the decision I decided to read a few blogs and Ashley from Film in the Fridge had just blogged about charm square quilts. It is was Em calls a Godwink. I sat at my sewing machine, and sewed through my first charm pack while watching Lost. I am so happy with it. I should have done it a long time ago.
So far this summer I have not worked on anything I thought I would. I am still in my PHD phase. I have some cute blocks to show you tomorrow.
