Creating Again

>> Saturday, January 10, 2015

I've spent the last two days down and out with pink eye and fevers.

Today I woke up with a new zest for life!
Grateful for everything (freezing temperatures and dirty dishes included.)

After working on some of the UFOs on my list (quilting on the large churn and fusing applique on a new tablerunner for a pattern) I couldn't resist some liberated churns.

It didn't turn out exactly as I had envisioned it (which is probably good because I'm pretty sure I was hallucinating yesterday!), but I was happy to have enough energy and stamina to get an idea out and DONE in a day.

Then I asked my husband what he thought.

Now, this isn't always a bad idea as my Liberated Churn Dash Quilt was created based on his preferences for a quilt.

He said there needed to be fabric between the churns.

I was already feeling noncommittal, and I had watched this video with Victoria today.

So I cut the runner in half.

And then cut it up some more!
I took a small pile of stashed fabrics that I found last week folded up in some fabric (probably to make a little quilt with) and started to play.

Is it strange that the churns have more life all cut up?

I sorted through my stash bin and found a few more fabrics to add. I'm going to leave it for tonight and see what it feels like in the morning.

Right now it feels like my creative heart is beating again.

With Joy,

Sarah V

It sure was fun to see your creative process and watch how the churn dashes changed. I can hardly wait to see where it ends up.
