Creating Modern Quilts

I love when inspiration hits!

I was having so much fun following QuiltCon through their mobile app that I got out my sketch pad one day at the farm and just started doodling.
Here is what I have so far.

The farm is the place my family goes to get off the grid so to speak.  No internet, no electronics, nothing fancy, just plain ol' country living=)  And we love it. This is where much of my inspiration comes from. 

I did receive a pretty fun email this week, that put a little smile on my face! 

I was procrastinating one morning, shortly after fb launched its new icons for feelings, and had some fun creating the image below. What I didn't realize is how viral the pic would g. I wish I had put my fb address on the bottom, maybe I would have got a few more followers!  Oh well, live and learn=) 

Did I show you the numbered pins I recently got?  They go from 1 to 100 and in 2 little compartmentalized boxes with about 6 or 7 pins of each number.  And they are sturdy and long little guys.  I love them. I recently had a whole bunch of circles pinned to my design wall and used these numbered pins to remember the order in which they went. 

Lastly, I will leave you with my favorite image this week. Have a great 7 days!

I went to my brother's house -he lives on a lake- Saturday. It is pretty cut off from electronics too- although the cell phone does work there. I think it is good to take a break from "being connected to the world" sometimes.

Congrats on getting in the "100 Blocks"
