A Blast from the Past . . . . .

I made this quilt top 5 years ago . . .
But I wasn't sure how to quilt it.
Quite a bit of unsolved emotion here.
I have left it languishing for these past years.

And now, I have an opportunity to have a private master class.
Long arm quilting with a great talent.
I need to bring a top . . . . . 
I took this out and looked at it and thought,
"Yes, now is the time."
So, I FINALLY pieced the back.

The idea of finally quilting this top is having a good effect on me.
I was feeling like I had lost my MOJO.
It happens from time to time for me.
Sometimes you need a bit of shove to get back on track.

Here is my postage stamp quilt blocks.
I decided to jump on the bandwagon with others
in my guild. 
 Helen, Kim, Earamichia . . . . the list goes on!
Instead of doing it charm like,
I decided to make 16 patch blocks.
My cousin's wife had a quilt made by 
her grandmother that inspires mine.

And here is a peek at what I sometimes do on the side!
I was so lucky to be asked to officate
at a friend's wedding.  My daughter was also a bridesmaid.
It was one of the best weddings I have been involved with, 
so much love and community.
They did everything themselves which made it so special.
 They are the cutest couple!

on another note . . .  
tonight I am watching one of my favorite movies . . . . 

Anthony Andrews, Jame Seymour and Ian McKellen.
Swoon worthy indeed.  Hehe.
