I love going to Quilt Market. The isles of new fabric, stacks of pre-cuts, and inspiration are pretty awesome…but also leave me craving some individuality by the time I get home.
I take a week or so away from my machine wondering what the heck I’m doing…and what I really like. Not what the industry and social media want me to like…but what I like. I have a hard time silencing that voice in my head (hello Instagram and Pinterest!) telling me what is a must make or what fabric I should be buying and sewing with right now.
Luckily all it takes is pulling fabric and taking time cutting, and stacking, and re-arranging for me to figure it out what I love to make, and what makes it original.
So there you go…that’s my deep thought for the year(s).
And also, remind me why I put my design wall (if you could call it that!) within reach of my 2 year old? On the upside it’s kept her busy and it’s pretty fun to watch her re-arrange.
