Journey, sold the first week. It was my first donation and I worried a bit that no one would bid on it. I was so pleased that I have started planning my donation for next year!
Here is one of my favorites of the current quilts up for bidding:

Projects in Process
Moving along with my October projects, piecing has started on a quilt that just begged to be made from a pile of fabrics.
And, the benefits of participating in the Sketchbook Project have started to surface in ideas for a new art quilt series. Here is a paper silhouette I created that I hope to use in a small art quilt in the series. I am going to do some experimenting with a piecing technique for the background and with adding the figure so I am getting antsy to get this project into fabric.
Philosophical Pondering of the Morning
I seem to take forever creating a quilt. I like to let things percolate a bit between phases. It seems that when I rush through the creation I make more errors and spend time ripping out and wishing I had thought more about what I was going to do next. I admire those who can whip out a piece quickly. I suspect I am this way because I so enjoy the process of creating a quilt that I don't want to rush it. In any event, this certainly does make me a 'low volume' quilter, but hopefully the quality of each piece is high.
