I am Grateful
I am grateful is the statement I begin every day with, at least on paper. This is because I start each day by gratitude journaling. I fill two handwritten pages starting every paragraph with the words I am grateful. Once I have penned these words, I complete the statement with stream of conscience thoughts related to the gratitude point until it leads to the next I am grateful for idea.
Inch by Inch
I am grateful for completing the sunflower this week. I had no idea how tricky this one would be. Why so problematic? Well, piecing parallelograms is not my strength, especially when combined with the mirror image required for paper piecing and fabric with front and back sides.
Now that the sunflower is finished I can join it to the yellow bud block made last week. They look a little wonky, but I am OK with that. Each flower in a garden is unique, right? That is something to be thankful for.
Row by Row
I am pleased to have reached a point with my quilting that I don’t sweat perfection. So what if points are snipped or seam lines are off a tad. The top row is done and that is good news. I can move on to assembling the quilt.
When I designed How Does Your Garden Grow? I purposefully included colors assigned in the Rainbow Challenge. Experience gives me the confidence to know it would work, but how? Scrap fabrics force creative solutions and provide unexpected outcomes. Isn’t that the fun of making quilts?
