I have had so much fun mixing fabrics during this blockhead journey. While some of my blocks are only 2 or 3 colors, some of my blocks have lots of different fabrics. Having colorful blocks will help me balance all the blocks throughout the quilt. Have you added any fabrics to your blocks other than what you first started with?
When I was at Quiltcon in Austin a few weeks ago, I was working at the Moda Bakeshop booth. Around the corner comes a familiar face, she yells Lissa, I yell Sally. I had not seen Sally in at least 30 years and I will say we had not aged a bit. She had moved from New York to Austin and is a quilter! Sally’s mom was one of my girl scout leaders and I guess I have always loved earning my badges. Here are a few badges that have been added to my collection. I know I have certainly earned the credit card one. Once a girl scout, always a girl scout.
