Last week I have been sick with bronchitis, could not sew, but did work on a sketch for my next quilt. I have some homespun plaids from 15 yrs ago. After seeing the Kim Diehl "Simple Comforts" pics on someone's post, I remembered my plaids. I have recently done some wool applique and want to combine applique with a sampler quilt. I have not ordered the book, instead I have been creating my own design using plaids, wool and some small prints.
The design phase is the most fun for me because with a good plan, cutting and sewing are relaxing and good therapy. I will hand quilt after our kiddos move so I will have a project to take with me when I stay to get my Alex and Payten fix and good times with Allison and Nick.
