Thank you for allowing me to post this!! haha. I have been thinking if I appease the blogger-god- perhaps a small 'sacrifice' or something??- it might allow me to post whenever I desire. I dont suppose stamping your feet & screaming obscenities could be considered a ritual dance of respect??
Or... I suppose I could try something different, such as mentioned by Alice, but let us not get ahead of ourselves here! I am still trying to master the basics of this lot.
Though I am a Non Believer, & essentially not superstitious, it can sometimes pay to 'hedge your bets' & heed old ways!
Now, most of you in the quilting world will know that the Amish believe that you must have a mistake in your quilt, as, only GOD is perfect!
Another line of thought subscribes to the belief that you need some mistakes, & broken or crooked lines to confuse the Devil! ( I am not sure if I believe in the devil, either!)
So I make sure there is plenty of room to confuse the devil in my work, & am sure if there is a GOD, he/she/it, will never feel remotely threatened or offended by my quilting creations!
That is what I say, & it gives me a good excuse to have oddities & little quirks in my quilts. After all, I make them for comfort, & hopefully, to be enjoyed, so I am sure if they were perfect, they wouldnt be as comfortable!!
This is my Autumn Hearts Quilt. I suspect you could tell I am an Autumn person, by the number of Autumn-looking quilts I make. I just love the colours & the feeling of Autumn.
I didnt design this myself, it was featured in a Magazine lent to me, & was originally called Mrs Bills Quilt- who knows why??.
Because of the colouring it caught my eye, & I kept mainly to the colour scheme in the book, from memory.
It would look good as a wallhanging, as it is not a large quilt.
I took this pic in my utterly messy sewing room yesterday, & had to carefully crop out all the junk that was visible around the edges.
It is one of the quilts that live in a blanket box I keep in the lounge, & SG uses these quilts to make cubbies when he comes to spend time here.
The box has a padded top, so it is very handy as an extra seat, also.
Son B is coming up today to spend the weekend here. It is a pity it is not Labour Day weekend as it is in NZ. We always feel our time flies by, & is all too short, if he stays just the one night.
He & GOM usually go off to the Club for a game or 2 of pool, & it gives them a chance to spend a bit of 'male' time together.
I hope you all have a nice weekend. It is luv-er-ly here this morning! A southerly wind came through in the night,& it has blown away all the horrible humidity, & it is lovely & cool, if a tad grey!
