After too long, I’ve finally begun the Confetti Quilt!
- Fabrics selected and loosely organized by color – ROYGBIV …
- Patterns for each block printed on paper designed specially for foundation paper printing …
- Morning Glory Studio – aka my sewing room – organized. Touching and putting things away was a great tactile experience that infused me with creative energy and the desire to actually spend time there – now that I have restored outer order. Gretchen Rubin is right: “outer order is indeed inner calm.”
I’m also gathering all sorts of ideas – fiction titles – for summer reading. Last week I received Stacy Abrams’ While Justice Sleeps and a friend surprised me by sending The Great Circle! That was a delightful treat.
Not much else to share. I’m still wearing my mask when I go out among the crowds or for a walk. Joining Kat and friends for Unraveled Wednesday.
Here’s to a good week!

Hooray for sewing! I’ve been working on my blocks today but I am using a very random approach.
I am so excited to see this quilt take shape!
What a fun quilt! I love all the bright prints. Somehow I’ve lost my quilting mojo – not that I had a lot to begin with – but I do have a small wall hanging size nine patch top that needs to be quilted. I am not familiar with The Great Circle but am off to investigate.
LOVE this quilt! Tactile experience is interesting, hmmm. Vugs!
I love this little preview of your quilt fabrics! It’s going to be fun to watch it take shape.
Outer order is so essential before I begin even the smallest of projects. But . . . it’s difficult to maintain! Looking forward, as always, to seeing the quilt evolve. I just made a much too long list of backlist books posted by Ann Bogel of books to read. The first one on her list was handed to me last week at a friend’s house with “You will love this” — “Rules of Civility.”
What a glorious collection of fabrics! I especially like A – it reminds of a Basic Grey scrapbooking paper. Yes, outer order is indeed inner calm, and I find it immensely soothing.
A quilt a quilt OOOOOOOOOH
Oh! I love seeing your starting process for your quilt! I am excited to watch this process take shape!
