There's nothing like a trip to the fabric store to drown your sorrows. Thank you for all your suggestions about how to continue with my quilt. They were all good suggestions, and they all required delaying this finish. I'm really wanting to move on, and so a fabric famine can't stand in my way. Besides...it's election day. Time to be decisive. Decisive, not divisive. Lets sew with decision, not division. (Hm...I wonder how many more of these I can come up with.) Jump in the boat, and vote! Put on your coat. Bring your goat! Okay, sorry. Sometimes the wordsmith in me gets carried away.
This quilt block hangs on the wall just outside my favorite local quilt shop, Boersma's. I wrote about this shop almost ten years ago. I might need to review them again because they've made some changes since then. Anyway...this quilt block put me in a good mood right away.
