swoon: quilt inspiration

It’s nearly the end of February, we are almost 2 months into 2012 and I have not done anything on my 2012 creative resolutions list!  So, it’s time to get cracking.   I’ve decided to rip off the band-aid and start making my first quilt.     I’ve narrowed down my inspirations to this Rothko Painting and the Hudson Bay Blanket Glacier National Park blanket.

I love the idea of both of them and I can’t decide, I need your help! You can vote in the poll below and let me know what you want to see me make.   I’ll keep the poll open until next Friday (March 2nd) when I will let you know the winner!



to do: 2012 Creative Resolutions

In the spirit of Katie’s “to do: 2012 Handmade goals” post, below is my list of Creative Resolutions. 2011 was a great year and I have a feeling 2012 will be even better.

So, this year, I will:

– Finish piecing and quilting my chevron quilt. I started it in June folks. Not good, I know.

– Take more weekend trips to the country and explore the outdoors.

– Learn how to make caramel popcorn. I’ve become addicted to it as of late.

– Sketch at least 3 times a week.

– Learn how to properly arrange flowers

– Screen print my own fabric

It may be a small list, but I’m excited to tackle it.

Cheers to a creative, happy and prosperous 2012!
