Every once in a long while I am struck by a wave of motivation that won't go away. I wish I felt this way everyday, but I don't so when the moment comes I just have to go. Right now I'm inspired to make a quilt for someone I don't really know but who I know needs some warmth right now. I dug through my ample fabric stash and found a bunch of fabric I purchased at a quilting expo before Tom Thumb was born. Red couldn't have been more than a year old when I bought it. Sometimes fabric just speaks to you and when it speaks you must buy even if you don't have a project for it at the time. This was the case with this fabric. One of my purchases was this panel:
At some point I had seen a design using this fabric where they cut up the panel to make new individual blocks so I decided to give it a shot from memory and came up with this:
I'm hoping to whip this quilt out quickly. I have a two week goal in my head, meaning two weeks from today, which is a feat I've never accomplished before. Can I do it? Do these flowers have power? OH YES!
