Yesterday I started my day selecting fabrics for the new quilt. All things Fall went into the mix. That purple polka dot really shows up!
Then I made a bunch of HST.
Then turned them into this, a corner square triangle with HST.
Then I gave it wings.....
....and started playing around with border ideas.
I need to sprout some wings so I can fly through my day. My to-do list includes getting ready for weekend company, finishing up the border sections, grocery shopping, and preparing applique pieces for five more pumpkins. I think I need a nap. When I look at my pumpkins, I'm thinking I need to make a red one to go along with the purple pumpkin and maybe a green pumpkin too. Why be conventional?
The corner square triangle unit is one of the twelve components that I'll be teaching at Quilting in the Garden in September. I'll be demonstrating how to resize this component and make several variations of this unit. It's fun and easy to make. My kitchen table looks like a bushel basket of leaves got tossed on it. I love it!
Sprout some wings today and let's all fly through our day together. Soar with creativity and beauty.
