I love quotes. I can spend hours searching the internet for quotes and sayings. If I find one I like I jot it down in a little journal I keep just for that reason. Many of these hope to make it on a quilt someday.
A group of creative friends that I spend my Tuesday evenings with, decided to do a roosting robin. Instead of passing each round on to another as you would do in a traditional robin you keep the quilt top and complete each round yourself. So, out came the little journal of sayings. This was a perfect opportunity to design around one.
"And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love." ~Kahlil Gibran. It popped right out at me and I was off drawing as fast as my pencil would go. I now have three rounds competed and one still to go. I am enjoying working on the black background. Something I haven't done too often in the past. Today I read the best quote on the back of a magazine. "You can't change a man...Unless he's in diapers. ~Mary Bennett. hmmmm now that sounds like a definate quilt in the making!
