Do you consider yourself creative? I am one of those people who love to make things but do not consider myself creative. Now I am not looking for you to say, "oh yes, you are creative", I am simply stating a fact. I can take a pattern or someone else's suggestion and build on it but I cannot think of things myself, as a general rule.
That brings me to the bee I put together called Stitch Tease. The eight of us in this bee are all starting our own quilts with our own "ideas" and then it will be a round robin bee. My idea was to incorporate words along with some of my favorite blocks and paper piecing. When I saw Amy's paper pieced block for a watering can I new I would have to incorporate this into my quilt some way and of course the word would be GARDEN. This is as far as I got today. The block was well designed and the instructions were super easy to follow, but now what do I do with an almost 10" block? How do I incorporate the word GARDEN into this block and make it approximately 25" square? I've been sketching all afternoon and still don't know how I will complete this beginning block to my quilt. But I do love the beginning and hopefully I will complete it this weekend.
edited to say that Amy pointed out a small error and I have corrected it. Thank you, Amy. Now the block looks like it should!
Will inspiration strike? More than likely I need to hop over to Pinterest and get inspired.
In less than exciting news, I have gotten a haircut and I can't tell you how much better I feel. I just was not loving the longer hair and the hassle that goes along with it. This is more me!
