Inspired and Quilting Again!

Sunday, March 6th, 2011

Stalled; stalled and feeling uninspired with my quilting.


Me, before last Sunday, about quilting

Then last Sunday, an Eleanor Burns PBS quilting segment showcasing her version of “Trip Around the World” sparked my creativity and I was off! I ordered her book but was just too jazzed to wait….

So I found another version of the pattern in my book collection….

Quilting Books

Books, books, and more books

dug into my stash of fabric,

and began to cut strips.

I’ve spent several hours each day piecing, using Harriet Hargrave’s starch method for joining corners and straightening rows and by yesterday afternoon, I completed the 5 sections now ready to join into the main body of the quilt.

It’s time to pick border colors…..
