WOW WOW WOW what an amazing adventure this has been—from the first “what if” to this final “I can’t believe it”!!!! I have stretched my horizons in so many ways that any limits I put on myself before are now gone!! Any designing doubts in my mind have been erased and replaced with the goal of pushing myself toward new and bigger dreams.
Each challenge in this contest was made to build upon and get ready for the next one. Each one a stepping stone for the final test—to come up with a design built upon a wide open concept. The “Opposites Attract” concept has challenged me to look at who I am as a designer and where I want to be as a quilt designer. Places I wouldn’t have even dreamt about before this contest!!
My reaction to the challenge theme was immediate—and in my research—the same reaction as my Mother and Lois, my quilting partner in crime and also my daughter—so I guess I must be on the right track for my final quilt in this contest. The sketch is drawn, the fabrics ordered from Cherrywood Fabrics and the EQ7 plan is next—right after I heal from having all 4 wisdom teeth pulled!! As the deadline draws closer watch my blog meanderingsalonglizardcreek.blogspot.com for some peeks into my inspirations and pieces of the final product.
I leave this last blog posting in my McCall’s Quilt Design Star™ 2012 with a quote from inspirational author Roy Lessin…Quilts are like letters that share someone’s thoughts…like books that tell someone’s story…like journals that reflect someone’s heart.
Thank you and God Bless.
