Catching up

This week I have been working away on my long term projects including 1) the Bead Journal Project (group blog here and my BJP blog here), 2) my 365 quilt and 3) Journey of a Quilter stitchery. It feels good to be making significant progress again and having some time to devote to these projects. I have finished all my fabric recordings for 2007. December entries were the longest month so far, since it was such a busy time of year with lots of activities going on to write about. I had two exciting blog happenings this week. One is that Bonnie at Quiltville posted some photos from her mystery quilt project and I am so thrilled that she used a photo of my quilt. Check out all the wonderful quilts she inspired at her blog here. The second is that my photo from this post of my ring blocks from Bonnie's mystery quilt inspired Solvi to make another whole quilt! Read all about it here.
Bonnie has come up with another great give quilters something to work on during the Super Bowl. Read about her idea here to make scrappy bargello quilts. Since I have already made a top using her pattern, I am not tempted (yet!) to start another quilt top! Maybe I should use that time to put on the borders and actually quilt this teal bargello quilt I made at last year's quilt retreat. Maybe....but starting a new quilt is so much more fun!

your 365 blocks look good! and the blue bargello is pretty, as are the little dream catchers from the last post. What a clever idea to do those! It's really neat how they all turned out so different. I think that is the best thing about classes.

Hello out there: Your energy and high level of talent makes you a Super,Super Quilter. In my goals this year is to take some of your classes, so watch out!!! In my UFO's I have a bargello (Greenwood Quiltery days) because I don't like the colour combination. Your teal bargello has inspried me to do a one colour bargello. Thank you.

I participated in Bonnie's BargelloBowl - and I was already thinking about one done in greens (I have the loads of this color family in my stash of strips)... seeing your FABULOUS teal flimsy tells me I need to go ahead with the green one (I was afraid there wouldn't be enough contrast - but I see I was wrong).
