No, this is not a 3 dimensional block. It's part of a pinwheel. The two pieces of brown stuck together and I happily chain stitched 10 of these. Another one of my classic boo boos! When I saw it I had to giggle.
Ellen of Growing Gills commented on my last post "Sewing With My Eyes Closed" and her words and this latest snafu prompted me to think about why I do what I do and how I go about doing it. I sat with my eyes closed and took a few moments to consider what she said. She used words like intention, joy, faith, beauty. In many ways she summed up why I love to quilt. The joy for me is in the process, the stops and starts, the bumps in the road, the successes, the learning, the sense of accomplishment in the creating and even in sewing bindings on twice. My work is far from perfect, but I try to learn from every project I attempt. Quilting is probably a pretty good metaphor for my life...Thanks Ellen for helping me "see".
