I started this quilt for my niece Lucy
and got stuck, without joy or ease...needing inspiration.
This little guy at the pet shops said, "stripes!"
Then the sun peeked out for some play and said, "plaid!"
And the glorious moon wanted, "DOTS!" of course.
As I played and contemplated, I was once again drawn to Tonya's book Word Play
and the quilt that was meant to be for Lucy was born!!!
I also decided to start making "littles" again - 10x12 inch quilts centered on a theme of the week. "Zippity Doo Da" is a favorite upbeat and positive childhood song perfect for background music as I make my way in my ruby red shoes!!!
