The Creative Peaks

Well, as usual it has happened to me again. I go for a while without quilting too much, then get back into a project and wham, all the ideas come to me for my other projects. I find the creative process so fascinating with its valleys and peaks, especially when the peaks come and there is not enough time to climb all of them. That is why this blog is great. It keeps me on track and helps me remember my ideas when I have time to get back to them.

I now have all of my presents completed for my Flurry quilt.

My border fabric for my red/aqua quilt came yesterday so now I can put it on and have my August UFO finished. Another thing I find so fascinating is the mail system. It only took 9 days to get here from California. Sometimes it takes that long for things sent in Canada to reach me.

My son's Halloween quilt needs to be worked on as well. I finished up his sister's last year. Now it's his turn.

I also finally committed to what I am making for my nephew. Last year I changed fabric with my nephew and brother so that I could get a quilt done for my brother by Christmas.I was not really enjoying the pattern I had picked out for my brother. I tried out a different one for my nephew in EQ6 and I really like how it turned out.

I also have to start thinking about my guild's quilt show next year and I am going to be teaching at my LQS so I need to work on that too.

Let me know how you are doing and how you manage with the peaks of creativity.
