Well I am posting early again as I am being given short shrift again tomorrow as hubby is working from home *smiling* It would be ok if he didn't get up with the chooks and start so early. Anyway......
All of the above are rolled up into the one theme this Friday. I am sharing a very favourite quilt of mine that I made in 2006. It was a BOM by very talented Aussie designer Leanne Beasley ( I am a huge fan of her work). As I had made her previous BOM in pinks and greens I decided I would make "Journey of a Quilter" in my most favourite colour theme...Green and Burgundy. This quilt is one of my most favourite things. It spoke to me from the minute I saw it and I knew I just had to stitch it. I loved every minute of stitching and quilting it. And while I was stitching it I was constantly reminded that I feel so blessed that I stumbled upon a local quilt show and was smitten enough to begin the 'Journey' of being a stitcher and quilter.It has taken me to places I never dreamed I would go and given me so much.....like confidence in myself, I have stitched things I would never have believed I could of, enhanced my creativity, allowed me to share with and admire other stitchers and most important of all....I met the most wonderful, supportive,giving and caring women I have ever been blessed to know. My quilting group friends are favourites all on their own. I love the central panel and the sentiments expressed in this quilt and it has certainly rung true for me. Since beginning my designing work I have met the most wonderful and encouraging people....'Stitchers' are indeed amazing people. Leanne's work has truly inspired me and I love that she's an Aussie. Our Aussie designers are truly unique (I know I'm a tad biased) and something to be very proud of. So there it is my FTF.
I think I have covered everything....A favourite thing, lovely flowers stitched on my quilt and it's red and green.
