It may have seemed a little quiet here on the blog and getting the time to comment on my favourite bloggers posts. It's been a busy time of it, some stressful with health blips popping up in the family and the dog! Some not so stressful with lots of workshops and guild work. I'm on the committee of our local branch now so getting more involved in guild work and continuing to admin the Modern Quilters Ireland group. But I have been making and sewing throughout and reading lots of blog posts on my iPad even if I don't get to comment on them all!
Lots of people have written about finding that balance between making, blogging, other social media, family and the day job and there are times when it can seem too much but I love blogging and I love making so I'll keep trying to find a way to share as much as I can. At the moment, trying to post once a week seems to work and after June I really look forward to be able to share some of the finished quilts I hope this round of designing will result in! And then maybe get back to the other 30+ projects on my to do list!
The centre square is 5.5" finished and it could be fun to strategically cut some cute doggy faces into this square and frame with some dog bones! I have worked up a version to use a charm squares too so am trying to decide which size to make and be consistent! Decisions, decisions....
I've also had fun playing with colour for a very simple offset log cabin construction.
