And every quilt you produce gets a first place ribbon and is given to a person who cherishes it for the rest of their natural life! :D Now wake up and get on with those spools! :lol: Rita.

i'm glad thst i could't sleep and found this forum topic. I started wtih TQS because of that 2009 star quilt. i did the center feathered border on a retreat - it was the hardest thing I had done up to then,and the lady next to me kept saying ' You'll never finish that this weekend. Well, that's when it got done,and it is a very front and center WIP, I'd like to really finish it, That feathered star is on my design wall constantly. Now I have the rest to do/ Now knowing that there are a few just beginning, I can follow your progress and hopefully be inspired to DO IT! Of course, between the Exchanges going on around here, I've learned that you have to be full-time quilter to get everything done that is our brains. Is there quilting in heaven?

Christine, You will love making this quilt. I had so much fun and met so many wonderful people on TQS. My 2009 BOM "June Cleaver on Acid" will be in the Road 2 California show next month. I'm going to go see it. And Margo! I love the left/right brain picture! It is so indicitive of quilters, wouldn't you say? Color on one side, measurements, 1/4" s/a, yardage, etc on the other side. Happy piecing Christine! geneva in Northern CA.

Thanks for that link Margo - what an utterly fascinating post! I will certainly be heading back for more on that site.

Jeanine, it shows up in a Google search for "left brain right brain" images.
Here is an article it was featured in: http://www.davidmansaray.com/the-left-brain-right-brain-misconception

Margo I love the picture of the right/left brain! I teach art and guide my students through many r/l/brain exercises -what is your source for pic - I'd love to use in my classroom - I notice a Mercedez logo....

Wow, the tech support are quick to fix things on the website. :shock: I'm impressed! This is a wonderful website, I'm so glad I drifted on in.

I finished uploading the rest of my quilt projects, there aren't that many. :lol: I've been looking at photos of finished quilts in the quilt gallery (lifted my jaw up off the floor a few times!) and now I'm inspired!

I need to use the left side for a few days, so I'll start stitching my daughter's Christmas present for a few days. One of these days I have to learn to pace myself!!

I remember that I had a color direction, set by the center of my star which was a batik with blue, purple, pink in it. I picked fabrics that looked good with that for the center, and then just went by instinct as I went outward. I think there is every color in that quilt, even though it reads blue and purple. I hope you have a good stash :D because you might find yourself sparking up your blocks here and there with stash fabrics, even if you get new fabrics for the quilt.

Margo! Where'd you get that picture of my brain?? :lol: :lol: :lol:
That's just how I feel. Work, left brain. Colorless, lots of numbers and words in rows.
Quilting, right brain- color! Texture! Pattern! Quilting! O Joy!

Love it!

Janine, I have a clover mini-iron, I love it! It's a great tool.

And dang if I didn't shoot myself in the foot... I should have quit looking at fabrics because now I can't decide whether to make a turquoise/brown/green/rose or the batiks I posted earlier.
