I Found It!!

Yup, I did!
I found it!
My motivation.
My inspiration.
My desire to create.
My joy of sewing.

It's been a few weeks since I felt like doing much of anything.  Having company, dealing with extra stresses at work, having a few serious issues on my mind, the inability to relax when I get home...and, of course, the finales of DWTS and American Idol!...all of those have played a part in my not getting much of anything done.  Ya know?   

But, first!  And, I won't bore you with the long story.  The short version is this...I am in need of curtains and was really pushing myself to make them using the fabric I had purchased 4 years ago, which isn't nearly as fun as I thought it was back then...and so I had a fabulous idea to use my Kashmir III fabric...started putting panels together...decided that they were much too pretty to use as curtains.  I know!  It didn't take long for me to think that they would make better table/dresser runners and...a quilt!  For me!  Like I need another quilt.  Yet, I have always planned to make a quilt for myself with this fabric.  

Kashmir III is the fabric I used to make this quilt.    

So.  Here are the panels for my quilt.  If you were to rotate the photo 90 degrees, you could easily see how these would make fabulous curtain panels!  Yes?

I am at the point of deciding what to use for the sashing and borders.  Perhaps a trip to my lqs is in order.  And, I have 3 more panels with the reds/golds/blacks of the Kashmir III collection that I'll make the runners with.  

I still have the project waiting that I mentioned a few weeks ago.  With the Curio fabric collection.  Everything is together and waiting on my cutting table.  And, you know, Snow Days is still waiting!  Pure bliss, I tell ya.  To think about working on those 2 projects. 
So.  That's it.  I am off and running on this Saturday morning!   I hope to have more to show you by the end of the weekend.

Have a great day!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."    Jeremiah 29:11

Beautiful blocks and fabrics, can't wait to see your finished quilt. I need to get moving too, I finally moved my machine to the large table so I can finish my larger quilts.

Yes they would make wonderful curtains and I don't agree they woudl be "much to pretty" for curtains - Curtains are something that you will look at everyday so why not have Pretty and Enjoy? So glad you found your mojo - now if i could find mine and talk it into sticking around for a good long while....
