" Our Town"
Back in June I volunteered to make 2- 24 x24 inch quilt squares for the upcoming Viroqua Harvest Moon Celebration in October. I haven't been much in the mood to sew over the last year, so I thought perhaps this might motivate me, but so far it has not. Ideally the squares should be done for our next meeting on August 17th, which is just around the corner. There will be 4-6 quilts total that will be marched down main street for the parade and then raffled off afterward. The theme for my quilt group is "homes/houses". I've been thinking a lot about my quilt squares but haven't done a thing to start them, for some reason the thought of sewing almost seems painful to me. So while thinking about homes and houses to quilt, this little painting popped into my head and away I went. So much more fun than sewing! I really should be sewing houses instead of painting them, but I'd like to think that this is a way of brainstorming or sketching out my ideas, right? I'm starting to get a little bit of that panicky feeling I used to get when I would put off home work. Just like the homework, I'll probably wait until the last minute. I have a bunch of ideas for paintings brewing inside my wee little brain that I'm sure I will start when instead I should be starting my quilt squares.
