The Traveling Quilts Bee - Round 7

June 22nd, 2013

TTQ button for meRound 7 of the Traveling Quilts Bee was just at my house with Ashley’s beautiful QIP (quilt in progress). If anyone isn’t familiar with the Traveling Quilts Bee, be sure to check out our Traveling Quilts flickr group and be a-freaking-mazed.

When I received Ashley’s QIP, I decided I wanted to do a similar ish improve log cabin like I did on Alissa’s QIP. What make’s what I did for Ashley so different is that I used prints scraps that long ago came from Ashley. This may be close to 2 years ago - Ashely had passed some scraps on to Elizabeth, and then the scraps from the scraps were passed on to me by Elizabeth. And now they’re going back to Ashely inside her Traveling Quilt. The circle of life in a cotton and linen blend.

I think so far with every QIP I’ve done, my addition is in an L shape. On Ashley’s I added the left side and then around on to the top. I guess that’s more of a backwards 7. Or an E without an arm and foot. Or an F all smart-assy, “look at me, no hands”.

Ashley’s QIP has gotten so big I had to enlist both my husband and son to hold it up. The guy in the socks and crocs… sorry ladies, he’s taken.

I’m trying something new. One of my favorite things about blogging is the social aspect of it, and I’ve made many friends via commenting on blogs (both receiving and giving). Because I receive a crazy amount of S P A M, have an unruly inbox, and because I find Instagram to be a way more effective way to socialize - I’m turning off my blog comments and am encouraging anyone who wants to leave me a comment to do so on my Instagram. I love that Instagram is so social and encourages conversions with multiple people, and isn’t one sided and private like blog comments are. Click here for this post’s corresponding Instagram.

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
