So I probably shouldn’t flaunt my creative visions before I actually make anything…
But I’ve been catching the quilting bug lately…
I’m finally all (or mostly all) moved into my apartment, which means I’ve gotten out much of my art stuff for the first time since I graduated in 2007. It feels so good to actually have better access to creative potential again. My room is bright and cheerful (photos to come–I tried my wee bit at decorating and it was fun), and I made sure I have a big desk for to have a space to create.
Mostly I’ve just been looking.
At lots and lots of pretty things on blogs and websites.
Last Monday, when I should have been filing my taxes (I made almost no money last year and wasn’t going to file…but then the economy collapsed and the government decided to borrow money from us so that they can give stimulus packages to–us, and I figure hey, I may as well cash in, right? So now I have to file).
Anyway. As I was saying,
Last Monday when I was supposed to be filing my taxes, I looked at lots and lots of online artsy-craftsy stuff–especially quilts–instead. One pattern/style in particular I fell in love with is called the cathedral quilt:
Which led me to this tutorial,
Which made me realize it’s a totally do-able but fancy-looking quilt for a beginner-slash-non-sewer like me!
So, I’m definitely feeling inspired.
JoAnn’s has a 50% off coupon through Saturday. Maybe I’ll go buy enough nice heavy cotton to “back” a quilt…!
