the sun is shining

It's lovely to see the sun , finally. I'm having a sort of quiet day today. I have a bit of a  of heavy head ache. Yesterday though, I finished up this quilt, so I can put it away until I'm ready to get it quilted. I have two out being quilted right now. This one will wait a bit.

I pulled out a charm pack and some plain cottons to make up a baby quilt. I don't usually like to work with collections but I couldn't resist the fabrics. I have mixed in a few others to finish the blocks.

Lately, I've been missing  the more creative side of me. I am finishing up a couple of my own creations, and I've been musing and feeling the itch to do something different.  I actually prefer to do more printing or dyeing on fabric and then seeing where that takes me, but it is a process for me that does take more energy and sometimes I just don't have it.
For those times, I keep the regular quilting projects on hand because it's easy to pick it up and sew a few seams. So, for the rest of today, I'm going to relax with some art quilting books and think about what I shall do next.

The quilt turned out great. I like the striped border. Hope your headache goes away soon so you can get back to the creative stuff you love.
