Floating Like a Feather
Do you feel like you are just floating around like a feather in the wind? Oh, I do. Not winter, not spring - ugh, we have snow again and for the next 3 days. My monthly goals are met and I really don't want to start on the next month's list. Quilt Alongs are finished or about to finish. Do I start something new - something small - something big? Floating.....
I decided to play with something a little whimsical. A 'Girlie Girl' layer cake. We just received word that a new baby will be joining the family. My nephew and wife, still early to know boy or girl - hopefully a girl so this little quilt will be ready.
The disappearing 4-patch is popping up all over and I have wanted to try it. I think this fabric just calls for it. ** I cut the layer cake into quarters, thus using 5" squares to make the 4-patch**
I cut 1" from the seams so I will have the skinny strips and middle 4-patch. I'm using the cute little girlie prints with dots in the 4 color ways - the daisy prints I'll use for a border.
And I picked the cross stitch back up. It actually is about 3/4's done, so this could be my filler of time while I'm floating.
Have you ever chased a feather floating down from the sky? Or stomped puddles?
Have you wondered why children enjoy life more than adults do? The answer lies in the fun element of life.
