Thank You, Scrap Bag.

What would I do without my quilting mentors?

Not only do they share their expertise, their ideas, and their shortcuts, they share their scraps. Without my mom and my good friend Colette, I would never have been able to get all these glorious pinky fabrics in my Diana Vreeland quilt. It's not a complex quilt. In fact, it's all just half-square triangles. But I love it, and I love the way the blues and pinks are directional -- all the blue on the bottom, all the pink on top. 

I laid out a few of my pieces on the coffee table to show off before they start being piece together. Oh, all that glorious pink...



And there's a nice picture of my living room, too. That's the morning tea from the day I took this picture. It was really excellent. I'm a little embarrassed about the yoga towel hanging on the screen in the background, but I'm pleased with how you can't see any threads on the carpet...
