we should take our time more often than not
breathe in/breathe out
Quilt in a Day Irish Chain
(linen and westminster fibers bundle available on the beyond the reef shop site)
someone asked me the other day,
"do you have the time to do this?!??"
and I thought to myself,
"if I don't have time for my own life....well...."
I'm not suggesting we shirk our responsibilities
while making a new quilt for a new pattern, (not the one shown above)
it is so much nicer to sit peacefully and sew little pieces together
than to "fast quick easy strip piece cut apart and all the rest"
those little pieces
(there's a time and a place for that, too, don't get me wrong, now)
just for today, just now, just this one moment
sit with your fabrics
choose each color carefully
enjoy the true genius of your sewing machine's capabilities
we are all running through our daily lives
let's at least savour the moments that we have while we are quilting
when was the last time you hand quilted anything?!?
you know, 'rocked the needle'???
set aside just one project....just one....for some hand quilting
so I made a decision
this new pattern is not going to have fast pieced quick strips slam it together
my apologies in advance
let's just hope you like it, regardless
ps - I will give you a sneak peek at the projects before they "go to market"
