Talking and Thinking About (Modern) Quilting

Hi friends, I stumbled across some interesting reading yesterday afternoon. Recently I've been talking a lot about how I'm trying to focus on valuing the process of crafting as much as I value the final product, so I was intrigued when I saw little "I Took the Process Pledge" buttons popping up in people's sidebars. If you're interested in the process/product debate or in modern quilting in general, I think you'll find these posts really interesting: These posts resonated with me because lately, despite my big talk about making a sweater, I seem to be spending most of my spare time thinking about making a quilt. After my attempt at the Denyse Schmidt Single Girl Quilt this time last year turned out to be a non-starter (so many pieces! so little patience!), I've entertained a number of ideas. Then I went out and bought this fat-quarter pack of fabric from the Hope Valley line. hope-valley It's all washed and ready to go, and so is the pile of cream coloured Kona cotton (all 7 m of it) that I bought for the Single Girl Quilt. All the while, quilt ideas have been tumbling around in my head. I bought the Proverbial Quilt pattern (also from Denyse Schmidt), and I really like the examples of this that I've seen so far: Melissa has one underway, and there's a similar idea here, from Tumbling Blocks. And then I saw Jocelyn's sampler quilt ( part one and part two) on Flickr – isn't it great? And then there's this turtle quilt, which I seem to have been mulling over since 2007(!). I'm still thinking, but in the spirit of the Process Pledge, I might share some photos and words here as I work on this (so far, mysterious) quilt. In the meantime, Cheryl rounded up some links to some other process posts; you might want to check them out. Oh! And if you're in Vancouver, don't forget that the first meeting of the Vancouver Quilt Guild is tomorrow night!
