"But, really, why does anyone create? You feel a... a restlessness inside, a need to make something new, something no one has ever seen before. You want to add to the beauty and the richness of the world with a gift, an offering that is uniquely yours. It's an act of selfishness and generosity, all rolled into one."

Here is the next round of Ineke's star pattern.

No, I didn't forget to attach it! The assembly comes later. This is Lizbeth color 663 Bright Turquoise Dark. This bit is not that visually interesting on its own, perhaps, but when it's all put together....

Georgia has just let me know that the quilt for the Tat Days scholarship fundraiser is done. You can see it at http://www.tatdaysscholarship.info/index.shtml.


  1. This piece is going to be dynamite! What size thread are you using?

  2. Anticipation is building...each photo makes me more eager than the last. Beautiful work!
