Off the machine today…Janet’s patriotic quilt. Custom, freehand. Multiple Omni colors and Hobbs 80/20 batt
In other news – After my classes with Helen Baczynski I have decided that I need to spend real time with my IQ system. It is silly to use it only for e2e work when it can do so much more. I simply haven’t taken the time to learn. Because of my quilting schedule I have let that learning and exploring go. More than once during class someone would ask “What would happen if you….?” and Helen would smile and say ” I don’t know. Let’s try it!” And that is what I need to do. Sit down with my tablet every day and play. And in that spirit I have already created two new e2e designs of my own (sort of) using components that are already installed on my table.
I think the problem was that I didn’t try to do something new until I needed it for a specific quilt. That’s too much pressure. Playing around is the key. It’s time to give myself permission to take the TIME to play. 🙂
