PirateSusie asked (regarding the Sun quilt) "How did you come up with this idea?" Well, Susie, it was born in a phone sketch doodle. I'm not much of a phone talker, but when I do, I nearly always grab a pen and whatever scrap paper is handy and I draw things. For some reason, one day I was thinking about a traditional New York Beauty block and how much I like that shape, but how much I don't want to do the paper-piecing involved in making a NYB. Then I started doodling and I came up with this: And that was the birth of the sun quilt idea. Evidently I was also shopping for books and underwear that day, and planning to mail something. Aren't you all glad to know that? Ahem.
