flashed these blocks at me and then encouraged my addiction.
Cheryl http://cherylsteapots2quilting.blogspot.com has suggested some sashing to control these wild blocks. Yes, I think that helps but I see that a design wall is what I will need to play around with these scrappy pieces.
Since I am left handed while in my right mind, it took another left hander http://alefthandedquilter.blogspot.com to be able to share the blame. Thank you my dear blogging friends for even caring what I am up to! I appreciate your inspiration and support. If I count all those scraps donated by friends, this quilt will be a celebration of friendship.
The end of summer is here and the plume grass is about to bloom. In a few weeks I will see those soft flowers nodding in the autumn sun.
Here is another thing I enjoy about the grass. Grasshoppers.
One blade of grass can be folded into a hopper. Isn't it cute? This was something I learned while at a Nippon Venture Jamboree. I was waiting at my work station for activities to begin and another Scouter was playing with the grass growing all around.
With a bit of coaching , I figured out how to make one and was told that if I made three and then taught it to someone else, It would be mine forever.
Years later I still have fun playing in the grass. Yes, "make three and teach someone else" has served me well over the years.
I wonder what other tricks there are to learn ... out there ...lying in wait...
