They are so much fun to make and I get more and more excited each time I finish one. I can't wait to finish up the last 4 and start putting them together into a quilt!!
This first one is a knot. I was terribly worried about messing up the lines and connecting something I wasn't supposed to connect, but it worked out perfectly on the first try. This one stems from a very personal, dark story that isn't mine to tell... but overall it symbolizes the way families are tied together in the most unbreakable, never-ending bond. The dark fabric underneath is intentionally very dark, which is part of the this knot's back-story.
This is New York state, where I grew up and lived until I was 25 years old. I made it green to symbolize the lush trees and farmlands around my home town. I put a ladybug over the area where I grew up.
This princess crown will remind me of the child within me, and that you're never too old to be a princess. The fabric is from the second dress I ever made my daughter and I thought the princess accessory print was perfect just the way it was, so I decided not to do any piecing on this block.
This is a runner. Running has become my passion over the last year and a half. I searched far and wide for just the "right" graphic to use on this one. It wasn't easy to find a "simple" shape that still looked like a runner, but I like the rounded, fluid lines on this one. (Thank you, Internet!) It doesn't show well in this photo, but the fabric is a neon / lime green, suggested by my daughter because I always wear bright colors when I run. I say it's because "neon makes you faster" --- but in reality, it makes you so visible to people that you're embarrassed to slow down. Hey, whatever works!
