I love cutting and sewing with freedom and abandon. I finished 10 blocks of 'Feeling Blue' in my two hours. It has a quiet, soothing, blue feeling.
Nova emailed me last week to let me know that she had finished her 'deer' quilt. She contacted me awhile ago and asked if it would be ok if she made a quilt inspired by the quilt made by me and my common threads buddies, Jon's graduation quilt. Of course I said yes. The reason I wanted to post about Nova's quilt is because it is a wonderful example of how someone can be inspired by a quilt and still not make a copy. You can definitely see the connection between the two quilts, but Nova has done special things to make the quilt her own. On top of that she acknowledged her inspiration. I was so proud to see her gorgeous work and so happy to know that the recipient loved the quilt. It's people like Nova (and there have been others too) who make me happy to share my work. Nova, you made my day in more ways than one. Thank you.
