I have some nature shots today. My daffodils are just so great this year! The whole circle garden is filled with them. In the center is a weeping cherry tree, and it has come into bloom now too. A whole chorus of wonderfulness.
I received Electric Quilt 7 (EQ7) as a birthday gift. I've never owned any of the EQ's before so I have a learning curve. Luckily for me, the EQ blog, Do You EQ, is having a Jump Start for EQ7 that started last week. Every two weeks, we will have a new lesson and then produce a block.
Here is my first block:
I like to learn by doing something, and have written back up. So this is great. The lessons walk you thru each step, and then you have to do it. I also have the written lesson to refer to.
---Next week I go to National Quilt Association's quilt show in Columbus, Ohio. Twenty years ago, or so, I lived in Ohio, and met a like-minded quilter named Pat. We went to a show in Virginia together from there all those years ago. Then our husbands each got transferred to new jobs, and we each left Ohio. We reconnected last year and planned on going to the Columbus show together---after no contact for 15 years! We had such a good time together, just like we had never been apart. So that's who I'll be meeting up with again this year. We've become so close. Such a good thing.
