One, Two, Three, Flow

Flow! What is Flow? Here is a wonderful article on creative flow: I love the blog Zen Habits. This article has wonderful suggestions for encouraging creative flow. One suggestion is setting a time limit. Victoria at Bumble Beans started a group called 15 Minutes of Play which goes right along with these ideas.

I was definitely in the Flow this weekend. I sewed a binding on three, yes three quilts. Including the quilt I made in Texas last year in the workshop with Gwen Marston and Freddy Moran. I hand quilted in with liberated fans!

This is a disappearing nine patch that is off to a friend in Indiana. I love the back.

This is my Rhymes in the Cabin quilt made for my daughters manager.

I am going to finish these bindings tonight during the Carolina-Kentucky game. Maybe I won't be as nervous if I have something to do with my hands!! We love those Tarheels!!!

I finished putting this one together. I love the way it turned out.

Here is a close up and the fabric for the back.

My creative juices were really flowing. Here are some houses I put together out of scraps. I love putting scraps together but I am not sure what to do with them. How do you use your scrap blocks? Wall hangings, in a bigger quilt, what do you do with them?

I made this tiny star. I really enjoy making them and they make a big impact but they can be tedious because you are working with such tiny pieces. Sometimes my hands don't work as well as they used to.

One more thing GO HEELS!!!
